What are Nippers (Junior Activities) ?

Junior Activities Life Saving is commonly known as "Nippers" and is made up of infants, primary and secondary school aged children, in the Under 6 to the Under 14 age group.

The aim of the North Curl Curl SLSC is to develop and educate Junior Activities Members, as required by the Surf Life Saving Australia 'Surf ED' program, and to promote progression and integration into the senior ranks of the club.

Competition is also available to those who wish, at interclub and State level throughout the season. Nippers are held each Sunday Morning throughout the summer season within the club.
