Woodside Nippers is a junior program that introduces children aged 5 – 12 years to surf lifesaving. Woodside Nippers is delivered at all thirty-one Western Australian surf lifesaving clubs throughout the summer season and is about children participating in safe, fun and organised activities in a beach environment.

Outside of the Sunday Woodside Nippers program, there are a wide range of opportunities available for members interested in participating in surf lifesaving sport.

For our Under 8 and Under 9 (7-8 years old) nipper members – who we refer to as Little Nippers – we have the very popular Little Nipper surf sports carnivals and clinics.

For our Under 10 – Under 13 nipper members (9-12 years old), SLSWA provides Nipper surf sports carnivals and championships.

See below for full details of nipper surf sports opportunities for the 2020/21 season. Additional clinic dates will be added as confirmed.

The Little Nipper & Nipper Competition Guide is also now available
