How can I help?

The nipper program at Bronte is successful due to the large number of parents and club members who continue to assist us and devote time and energy into making our nippers future lifesavers. 

Nippers does not work without parent volunteers. There are many ways in which you can help and we encourage all parents to chose something that suits them.

Nipper Parent – parent helper (BBQ, merchandise, beach activities) with restricted club access. It is compulsory that at least one parent registers as a Nipper Parent.

Active Parent – active patrol member, bronze medallion certified with full club membership rights.

Associate Member – over 35, not an active member but full club membership rights.

All parents are encouraged to be age managers, water safety and hence to complete their bronze medallion. Nipper parents are unable to assist in the water unless they have completed their bronze medallion.

If you want to help you need to register yourself in the same way as you registered your child/children. You then need to complete the Working With Children Check Form . Once you have completed the form you can bring it to the office with your photo ID.
