Welcome to Coffs Harbour Surf Life Saving Club Nippers

Nippers is a junior activity program run to educate children about surf safety, develop their beach awareness and teach them the skills to competently swim in the ocean. Children aged 5 to 13 years old gain confidence through our Sunday nipper days in a safe beach environment, while meeting new friends, having fun, and working towards becoming a future surf lifesaver.
