Nippers is a fun, educational and healthy summer activity for all the family.
We have a nipper program that is run every Sunday morning from 8:30am during the months of September through to March. Nippers is for kids aged between 5 and 13 years of age who want to improve their beach skills, make new friends and have Fun!
Patrolling Members of 9 Patrols who volunteer their time to Patrol Suttons Beach from generally September to April . They can be trained in all aspects such as Bronze Medallion, Advanced First Aid, Spinal Management, Rescue Boat Crewie & Driver, Beach Management and more. They are rostered on once every 3 weeks but can join any Patrol they wish. A number of our members when not rostered onto Patrol also participate in Water Safety for our young Nippers.
This is a club competition with 3 rounds throughout the season. Nippers do a variety of events as they do every Sunday, such as flags, swim, boards, sprint and deep wades.
