Welcome to

Mooloolaba Nippers

Our Mooloolaba SLSC Junior Activies are designed to ensure children aged 5 to 13 years have fun at the beach,  while participating in lessons that will give them a pathway to becoming a fully rounded participant in both surf lifesaving and sport.

Our Nipper season starts on Sunday 19 September 2021 and programs are held every Sunday until early March 2022, providing programs on Mooloolaba Beach across approximately 22 weekends!

Each Sunday, the program runs from 8.00am until 10.45am. Younger age groups (Under 6 & 7s) finish earlier at 9.15am.

For our 2021/2022 Season, children must be 5 years old as of 30th September 2021

Lifesaving is something for the whole family to get involved in and there are many supporting roles that you can play as a parent of a child involved in Junior Activities and is an amazing activity for growing a child’s confidence, knowledge and skills in the beach environment. 

As Nippers progress through the various age groups, they will undergo lessons in wading, running, swimming, board paddling and lifesaving skills including working towards resuscitation and first aid.
