The fun of surf life saving starts from when you join as a nipper.
Our Nippers and Youth Programs cater to children and young adults aged 5-17, regardless of their skill levels. These programs emphasize personal growth, surf safety education, and surf sports competence, while fostering community engagement through volunteering and surf lifesaving initiatives. At North Haven Surf Life Saving Club, we welcome everyone to our inclusive, family-friendly community.

The Nippers season kicks off every October and concludes at the end of March the following year, with a two-week hiatus during Christmas.
Saturday activities encompass a blend of surf safety education and surf sports, which include:
We take pride in offering Kudlyu, a modified nippers program tailored for young individuals with additional needs and disabilities. Named after the Kaurna word for the Black Swan, Kudlyu aligns with our regular nippers schedule, providing a safe, inclusive beach environment.
Youth Crew focuses on beach and water training every Saturday from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm, alongside additional weekly training sessions in various fitness areas. Check with the Junior and Youth Coordinator for the current schedule.
