Nipper Age Groups

Nipper Age Groups

There are 8 levels in the Woodside Nippers program which correspond to the 8 age groups – Under 6 through to Under 13 – and each year build upon the skills and learning from the previous.

At the completion of the Woodside Nippers Program, when your child finishes the Under 13 Surf Smart 2 level, they will be equipped to move into Surf Life Saving WA’s Youth Programs, gain their Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) and ultimately, should they wish, become a qualified surf lifesaver who can patrol our beaches and provide a service to the community.
