How can I help?

It takes a lot of helpers to run our program and so we need parents to help in a number of ways in our club, some of these are detailed below:


Parents will be rostered on to help out with the after session BBQ

Water Safety

If you have your Bronze Medallion you can help us in this crucial area of our nipper program, if you don’t the club runs numerous courses for attaining this through our season.

Wader Safety

No time to commit to obtaining your Bronze Medallion. We have a “brigade” of green tops, who aid the nipper program “in the shallows”

Beach Set Up

A few parents are required before each nipper session from 8:30am to help “set the beach up”.

Age Managers

Each age group requires age managers to oversee the delivery of our well structured nipper programs. We encourage you to consider a role as an age group leader, or coordinator – no surf lifesaving experience needed.

Board and Equipment Maintenance

As you can imagine our equipment gets a lot of wear through the season and we welcome anyone with the necessary skill or time to help in its maintenance.


We have a few activities through the year to help fund our Nipper program, help out at these or offer a suggestion for a new activity

Join the Committee

Our club is much more than Nippers, join our committee and help grow and administer this Warrnambool icon that provides such an essential service to our community


Each time the age groups change from activity areas or finish their sessions there’s often equipment that needs to move with them. Grab some!

Age Manager Assistants

Many of the age group activities run more smoothly with a few extra hands, in particular flags, runs and roll taking.


Our Nipper program has many expenses and maybe your company can help
