Junior Activities (Nippers)
All members aged 7-13 are automatically enrolled in Surf Ed Nippers, so joining the club is the key.
Children join as part of a family membership. For more info, see Membership tabs.
Are you aged 7-13 and enjoy...
Going to the beach? Making new friends? Keeping fit and learning new skills?
If the answer is "yes" then the OGSLSC Nippers program could be for you.
The OGSLSC runs a fun and active Nippers program that has two different options for children over 7 years of age: Surf Ed and Surf Sport.
Surf Ed is an intensive, six session program that runs over the Christmas period and includes beach safety, surf awareness and basic first aid.
2020/21 Surf Ed dates are yet to be confirmed. Surf Ed usually consists of six evening sessions between Christmas and early January.
We are working through the restrictions in place looking at options for delivering the Surf Ed program, but at this stage we cannot guarantee it will run as it has for the last few years. We appreciate your understanding. Current (2020/21) and 2019/20 members will be receive email information when it becomes available.
- Surf Sport usually runs from October through to March with training on Friday evenings and Sunday mornings. Surf Sport Nippers are expected to also participate in Surf Ed and are encouraged to represent the club at local and state carnivals. Due to COVID, it looks likely that the start of training will be delayed until November/early December.
The most important part of the Ocean Grove Nippers program is having fun at the beach with your family and friends.
Members aged 7-13 are automatically enrolled in Surf Ed. Those who choose to participate in Surf Sport pay a $30 levy for the season, which goes towards maintenance of Nipper trailer, marquees etc.
