Surf Life Saving - Sydney Northern Beaches

Cadets wear the Red and Yellow

When a nipper turns 14 years old they leave the “Nippers” or Junior Activities program and become a member of the senior section of their club. Having attained the Surf Rescue Certificate they are now eligible to patrol their beach. SLSSNB has developed a “Rookie” program which clubs can use to pathway youngster through cadets. Many of the clubs host great activities for teenagers such as sleepovers, outdoor challenges and trips away to encourage them to stay within the movement.

Active 15 – 18 years

This age group is an exciting time in surf lifesaving as the movement throws up lots of challenges from doing the Bronze Medallion to becoming the crew person on an IRB.
