To make sure that Nipper programs can run successfully it is important that parents put their hands up and offer assistance.  There are many ways in which you can help:

  • Gain your Surf Rescue Certificate or Bronze Medallion (to assist with Water Safety)
  • Assist the Age Group Manager during sessions
  • Assist in setting up the beach or packing up the beach equipment, and washing off boards
  • Volunteer to help with BBQ’s and other social fundraising events

For further details about how YOU can assist please contact Nick Perry
