A community of fun!

Catering for children aged 5 – 12 years, Woodside Nippers is a great opportunity for children to be introduced to an active, friendly, and tight-knit local community – as well as building valuable life skills that will accompany them into adulthood.

Not only will your child have fun and meet new friends, they will develop the ability to become a knowledgeable participant in lifesaving beach patrols as well as a wide range of surf sports.

Delivered at local beaches throughout Western Australia by our surf life saving clubs, Woodside Nippers programs generally run from October through to March of each year.

At the completion of the program, when your child finishes the Under 13 Program, they will be equipped to gain their Surf Rescue Certificate and should they wish, to become a qualified surf lifesaver who can patrol our beaches and provide a service to the community.
