Welcome to South Maroubra SLSC Nippers

Like all surf life saving clubs, South Maroubra holds junior lifesaving activities on the beach on Sunday mornings throughout the Summer lifesaving season. Nippers are an opportunity for kids to enjoy a run on the beach and a splash in the surf and to catch up with their friends. Of course, Nippers also offers those kids who are keen an opportunity to compete against athletes from other surf clubs throughout Sydney and NSW. South Maroubra proudly holds a long history of success at the highest levels of Junior Competition.

It's always surprising who you see down on the beach on a Sunday morning; friends from school, from swimming lessons, footy, soccer or netball. South Maroubra Surf Club is located in an area where the surrounding district is heavily populated by young families.

As a result, the Club exhibits a family atmosphere where new members are welcomed and kids are not daunted by a heavily competitive environment.

Our Main Objectives

    - To teach our kids to be safe in the water through education, example and participation.
    - To ensure a safe beach and aquatic environment for our Nippers by providing a high water safety presence.
    - To continue to encourage competition in sanctioned surf life saving events throughout the season.
    - To encourage strong membership.
    - To have fun

In the main, Nippers at South Maroubra strives to provide organised sports on the beach and/or in the water for children from 5 years upwards who are members of the Club. Each Sunday during the Lifesaving season we aim to promote demonstrations and generally further the interest of the surf lifesaving and the Junior surf lifesaving club movement. We aim to arrange classes of demonstrations and classes of instruction to develop a spirit of good sportsmanship and citizenship amongst our boys and girls.  Refer to the documents attached for each age group outlining the seasons lesson plans for Surf Education
