Nipper Volunteers

The Nippers program is able to be offered through the awesome efforts of volunteers....

There are many opportunities for you to volunteer and enjoy the rewards of:

  1. Being part of a fun team of volunteers
  2. Sharing the Nippers experience with your kid(s) at a deeper level
  3. Building your own skills and qualifications
  4. Being part of the action (you will spend a lot of time on the beach as your kids go through Nippers, so you might as well get out there and have fun at the same time)

Some of the roles require Surf Life Saving Australia qualifications. If you haven’t got a qualification, don’t let that put you off volunteering for the role. The club will support you in obtaining the qualification – some are short online courses, some involve face to face training and practical's. The face to face training and practical's are provided in a fun, inclusive and supportive environment with fellow club members. This is a great way for you to learn and build skills at the same time as your Nipper.

An overview of the volunteer roles for each age group is provided below:



Team Managers

Be the glue that pulls the annual Nipper program together for each age group and be the oil that makes it run smoothly.


Lead a fun and challenging program with the reward of seeing Nippers grow in confidence and capabilities and building your leadership skills at the same time.


Enable our Nippers to compete by providing this key role of officiating the events for the age group your Nipper is competing in. The club needs to provide a ratio of officials when we enter Nippers in carnivals.

This role also gives you a front line, behind the scenes view of your Nipper competing.

Water Safety

Be in the water, swimming alongside and riding the waves with your Nipper whilst keeping the group safe.

As part of this role, the club will support you in obtaining and maintaining your Bronze Medallion. Adult helpers are key to making our Nippers sessions work, but unless you have your Bronze Medallion, you are actually adding to the numbers that we need to provide water safety for.

First aiders

Hopefully we don’t need you, but if we do your skills will be very much appreciated.
