2019/2020 CURRUMBIN NIPPERS SEASON CALENDAR
What is Nippers?
Nippers is the junior branch of the Surf Lifesaving movement. It educates U6 to U14s about many aspects of surf lifesaving and prepares them for entry into the Senior Club. Children must be at least 5 years of age on or before midnight 30th September 2017 in order to be old enough to participate in the 2017/2018 Nipper season.
Junior Activities can be a very rewarding experience for the whole family. Not only do the children learn important beach and water skills and enjoy friendships that come with belonging to a club, their parents can also gain valuable knowledge and discover personal satisfaction in participating.
Currumbin Beach Vikings Surf Life Saving Club Inc. recognises that the identification and management of risks of harm to children and young people is essential to the creation of a safe and supportive Surf Life Saving environment. Currumbin Beach Vikings SLSC is committed to providing and promoting safe environments for children and youth.
The Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy (CYRMS) provides the framework to which Currumbin Beach Vikings SLSC (as an SLSQ entity) can meet the legislative requirements and comply with the State Government’s Working with Children (Risk Management and Screening) Act 2000. The strategy helps to ensure the organisation is providing a safe and supportive service environment for children and young people, by identifying and minimising risks.
The strategy incorporates a number of component which are utilised to create a safe environment and ensure it remains safe. Screening employees and volunteers through the blue card system is part of the strategy.
