Surf life saving is an amazing activity for growing a child's confidence, knowledge and skills in the beach environment.

Not only will your child have fun and meet new friends they will become part of an iconic organisation that has served the Australian community for over 100 years.

The juniors of today are the future of surf life saving and that is not lost on Surf Life Saving NT and our clubs. Every club in Australia offers a nippers program, all with various styles and sizes.

Not only is nippers a fun way for your child to enjoy the beach in a safe environment, it also offers children an educational pathway through the delivery of the SLSA Junior Development Program. this program is designed to ensure children have fun at the beach while participating in lessons that will pathway them to becoming a fully rounded participant in both lifesaving and sport - we like to call it 'Serious Fun'.

A summary of each of the junior development awards is below. For further information on the Junior Development Program click here and for a summary of each Junior Age Group Award click here.
