The Club

North Cronulla SLSC "Nippers" Junior Activities Group

North Cronulla Nippers Club was formed in 1963 when forward thinking Club Members saw the Nipper as a very important section of the club to provide an opportunity for young people to learn, become proficient in and enjoy the skills of safe surfing and become future surf life savers on duty at North Cronulla Beach.

To quote the Club's 40th Annual Report “ This Club caters for boys between the ages of 8 and 13 years, and its aims and ideals are to prepare the youngsters for future careers as lifesavers. It also teachers the individual the meaning of team spirit, to learn to lose as well as win, and to gain surf sense; all important attributes so necessary in developing a youngster’s character”

The first season was in 1964 – 1965 are grew in popularity to have 120 Members at the end of this season. Today we have over 450 boys and girls ranging from Under 6’s through to Under 14’s learning and enjoying surf life saving training and education, competition, team work and spirit and enjoying themselves at the beach.

We recently celebrated 50 Years of Nippers at North Cronulla SLSC and look forward to another 50 years!
