The program offers fun, participation and play as well as gaining valuable lifesaving skills as well as wading, running, swimming and board paddling. The nippers will also be able to show case their skill at club, regional and state surf lifesaving carnivals representing their clubs if they wish.

Members will have opportunities to build on their personal and professional capabilities in becoming Junior Club Captains, Junior Age Managers and obtaining their Surf Rescue Certificate then Bronze Medallion and First Aid Awards to name a few.
