Summer Holiday Program

The Jan Juc SLSC Summer Holiday Program is an exciting recreational and educational program that provides members with a wide range of opportunities including physical activity, social interaction and surf awareness. 
This national education program is designed for 6 – 12 year olds and is structured to provide a continual development of surf awareness specific to their ages and abilities throughout the lifesaving education program. Following the Summer Holiday Program participants should have a good awareness of beach hazards such as waves and rips and also have a basic knowledge of resuscitation and basic first aid. This education program provides young members of Surf Lifesaving with developmental lessons that provide an introduction into the surf awareness and surf safety aspects of the Surf Rescue Cetificate (SRC). The SRC is the introductory award for a cadet patrolling lifesaver (13 – 15).

Click to submit Nipper Registrations

You MUST submit the correct Age Group Nipper Registration form for any nipper who wishes to particpate in the Nipper Programs. 

Preliminary Swim Assessment

Evidence of a nipper’s swimming competency is mandatory for all nippers and must be provided before participating in any water-based activities. Evidence can take the form of:

  1. Return of this Preliminary Swim Assessment 2021-2022 form to the Club Office after it is signed by a parent AND a qualified coach, swim teacher or lifeguard;
  2. A nipper’s Competition Skills Evaluation (S-Badge) from the 2020/2021 season – no assessment is required but a parent will need to complete this Preliminary Swim Assessment 2021-2022 form to indicate that the nipper can still meet the requirements;
  3. Assessment by the Age Group Coach at a club organised pool based session (details on TeamApp);
  4. Assessment by the U7 Age Group Coach as part of the early sessions at the beach (Under 7 Nippers only).

The impact for nippers who are unable to complete any of the above options is:

  • Under 7&8 – Can participate in Nippers, the club will provide modified activities.
  • Under 9-13 – Unable to participate as activities will require the nippers to swim the minimum swim assessment distance. VicSwim or attending swim lessons would be more beneficial to the child.

Please refer all Preliminary Swim Assessment questions to or via the TeamApp chat rooms.
