Life with kids in Sydney's East
Nippers is about learning new skills, gaining confidence and having fun in a safe beach environment. For Nippers, the beach is the classroom. They gain confidence by passing the 'tests' of swimming, board paddling, beach sprinting, dolphin-diving, spotting a rip, having fun with new friends and discovering things about themselves.
ALL Nippers (new, existing and club-transfer members) MUST PASS a Preliminary Skills Evaluation at the start of each season.Specifics of the Preliminary Skills Evaluation for each age group will be published here before 1st August 2016.Some registered swim schools can provide a signed Pool Swim Certificate certifying your child can swim the designated proficiency times. If unable to provide such certificate, your child will need to attend Clovelly Nippers Swim Proficiency on Sunday 11 September 2016 (1-4pm) at Coogee Diggers (indoor heated pool) or Clovelly Ocean pool on Sunday 18 September 2016 (12–2pm).
Existing Members must email their Age Registrar a copy of their child’s Pool Swim Certificate by 18 September 2016.
In addition to the Preliminary Skills Evaluation, we also have the Competition Skills Evaluation for any Nippers who wish to participate in competition. Competition Skills Evaluations will be undertaken during Nippers.
