What is Nippers?
Nippers is an activity-based program run to educate young children about surf safety and awareness when visiting a beach. The nipper program also offers participants the opportunity to meet a new set of friends whilst they are being challenged in activities controlled within a learning environment.
The Nipper program is held during the summer period on Sunday mornings.

Objectives of the Umina Junior Activities Committee:
At Umina Nippers our objective is to provide a safe and fun environment for children aged 5 to 13 years to enjoy the surf safely. In a fun and enjoyable environment, with qualified instructors nippers are encouraged to learn about life saving and surf safety. For those nippers interested, the program also introduces the competitive side of Surf Lifesaving. Allowing nippers to use their natural skills in competition at a series of carnivals held throughout the season and to promote fellowship, fair play and enjoyment while learning very valuable lifelong water and surf skills.
