Israel Life Saving Federation
introduced the Junior Educational Development Program of Surf Life Saving Australia famously recognized as the "Nippers" to Israel's beaches in summer 2020.“Nippers”
is an integral parent and youth program that focuses on beach awareness, water safety and the environment.
For Nippers, the beach is their classroom. Nippers gain confidence through beach fitness, surf awareness, survival, first-aid training, learning board and tube rescue skills while having fun..
Our Nippers program is catered to children from ages 7-12.What does the program look like?
Participants are divided into groups according to age and skill.
Each group rotates to one of our 4 stations on rotation:
1. Surf Awareness and Tube Rescue
2. Rescue Boards
3. Beach Fitness
4. First Aid & CPR
At the end of each course, the participant will receive a certificate confirming that they have learnt the necessary skills mentioned above.
Prerequisite for participants in this course: all Nippers participants need to be able to float and tread in order to participate in the program. There is a compulsory basic standard swimming test that all Nippers have to undertake before the course.Please view swimming requirements
