Nippers are aged 7- 13.  We have a dedicated team of experienced coaches who will support the Nippers in a variety of activities that range throughout the year.  We divide our nippers into ability groups so that each individual is nurtured within that setting and enabled to progress to the best of their ability.

We believe in developing their confidence in the water.  In the winter months, we offer pool training and in the summer season, we develop skills on the beach. We are working towards entering more of our Nippers on the various competitions that take place as part of the Surf Life Saving club scene.

Nipper Winter Swim Sessions are held at Truro School every Saturday.  Sessions are 3 – 4 pm & 4 – 5 pm, please contact us to find out which session your child will attend.

Nipper Beach Sessions will start on Saturday 6th of June.  Be at the Club house ready to go at 2pm.  The sessions will be from 2pm to 4pm.  All Nippers attending will need to be paid up members.  Wetsuits & wetsuit boots are essential.  All parent helpers are gratefully received – the more helpers we get the safer and more enjoyable it is for the Nippers!  The cost is £3.50 per session, which includes a barbeque at the end. Please be aware that parking at the club house can be problematic, especially when there is good surf…it pays to be early!

Newcomers are more than welcome – we have membership forms at the sessions, just bring your cheque book for membership fees!
