If your child missed the Nippers Proficiency Swim there are 2 options:

1. If your child is currently having swimming lessons or is a member of a swim squad, print out The Proficiency Swim Form, have it signed by a qualified swim coach and email back to the office. Please remember to write down what AGE GROUP your child is in.

For more information please see Proficiency Requirements.

2. Depending on the re-opening of The Bronte Ocean Pool, there will be opportunities to become proficient at the first two weeks of Nippers.
Please liaise with your Childs Age Manager on the day.

General Information

Every nipper family must register at least one Nipper Parent. This is compulsory and as such it has been incorporated into the Nipper fee schedule. This legally permits the registered parent to assist at Nippers in non Water Safety activities such as laying out flags, participating in other sand activities and helping at the water's edge with counting in swimmers and paddlers.

We hold a short seminar about the involvement of Nipper Parents on Monday, October 24th from 7pm at Bronte Surf Club, that must be attended by all
NEW Nipper Parents. Once the Nipper Parent has attended this night, they will receive a ‘Beach Crew’ cap that should be worn on the beach each Sunday to help to identify those that are able to assist. 

We request that members register online, via this link

Nippers come under the ‘Junior Activity Member’ category
Nipper Parents register as ‘General’ members
Active patrollers and/or water safety register as ‘Active’ members - you must hold your current Bronze Medallion to register in this category

Please note that once you have completed the online registration, you will notice that your membership sits as ‘pending’. Payment must be made immediately for your ‘pending’ membership to be finalised. Registration is not complete until payment is received.

The current fee schedule can be located on the Membership Fees page.
