Junior activities - providing a safe, friendly and welcoming environment to develop surf awareness skills for kids aged 5 to 13.
General information is available in the attached brochure.
See "Membership/Joining" for details on Membership Applications for Season 2017/2018.
Parents/carers/guardians are advised that as a voluntary organisation the Club requires assistance from you to make our nipper program an enjoyable experience. For this reason each nipper applying for membership with the Club includes an accompanying application for Club membership by a parent/carer/guardian, with the expectation that the parent/carer/guardian will assist in some capacity with the Club’s nipper program. See the Club Policies page for more information.
Transition from Nippers to Cadet Lifesavers
Over recent years, Ballina SLSC has developed a program for U14 nippers with the key aims of retaining membership and participation in club activities and developing leadership and surf life saving skills for our cadets. All U14 members will be encouraged to participate in the program according to their interests and abilities. The program is described in the attached document. U14 members attend an SRC camp at the start of the nippers season to attain lifesaving qualifications.
