Welcome to Surf Life Saving Lakes Entrance (SLSLE). We hope that this information booklet will answer most of your questions in regard to the Nippers program. Should you require more information, please contact the Nippers Co-ordinators or Assistant. A contact list is available in this booklet.
The Lakes Nipper program is run for children aged from 7 to 14 commencing in November/December, on a Sunday, through to mid March. We encourage families to get involved, whether it is on the beach or in the water. It can be as much fun for the adults and the more help we get, the better the program is for the children.
SLSLE provides a surf education program which, under the auspice of Life Saving Victoria (LSV), includes competition, training, surf awareness and first aid, all taught by experienced volunteer life savers. The program is run in a safe, friendly environment that encourages children to have a go at all activities.
When you join up with the Club, the facilities are available for you to use. We hope that this will encourage a healthy activity that the whole family can enjoy. Hopefully down the track, today’s Nippers are tomorrows surf lifesavers.
The Club aims to develop each child’s potential and whilst winning competitions is great, we are far more interested in helping a child to build their confidence, give something new a go and expand their abilities in the surf. We value good sportsmanship, the ability to work in a team and have fun with each other.
To be eligible for under 8’s you must have turned 7 by the 30th September. We DO NOT offer any programs for ages less than 7.
