Sign on for Rainbow Beach Nippers

Sport - Sign on for Rainbow Beach NippersHow many sports involve only a two hour commitment per week, cost only $165 (that’s not per child, but per family!) and involve mandatory time at the beach?

It sounds good, because it is! The Rainbow Beach Nippers program is for boys and girls aged between 5 and 13 years of age (age as at September 30).

“Nippers is a fun program designed to teach kids surf safety and awareness,” said Co-ordinator Nerissa Legge. “They learn the traditional surf sports such as surf swimming, board riding, beach flags and sprints.”

Nippers also get an introduction into surf lifesaving through an award system. “The older age groups are taught skills such as CPR/First Aid and surf rescues,” explained Nerissa.
