Welcome to Nippers

The Junior Division of the Port Elliot Surf Lifesaving Club (PESLSC) would like to extend a warm welcome to all new members and their families. We would also like to welcome existing members to a new season of surf life saving.

Our Junior Division (Nippers and Cadets) emphasises the provision of enjoyable activities which encourage children to develop beach and water skills, as well as an understanding of beach safety.

NippersOur CoreValues areas follows:


  • Inclusion
  • Sprtsmanship
  • Participation
  • Integrity
  • Fun
  • Cpetency
  • Teamwrk
  • Equality


The Nipper Program aims to teach children surf awareness, life saving skills, competitive and team work skills and surf skills as they progress through the age groups from Under 7 to Under 14.

Activities include:
Surf Safety
Board Paddling
Surf Swimming

Very few things typify the Australian culture of “having a go” more than surf life saving. Children and families come together to have fun, make new friends, learn to live healthy and active lives and give back to their community. The skills children develop may also help them to one day save a life!
