Manly Nippers offers a wide range of training sessions for entry level nippers who are becoming more confident in the surf, through to our seasoned competitors. The established team of qualified coaches has a depth of experience in helping develop our youngsters on the beach and in the water and many of them have been competitors in surf-lifesaving themselves.
In addition to our Sunday morning sessions at Nippers, our comprehensive program of training sessions and camps mean that every child has the opportunity to develop their fitness and improve their skills. Water training sessions on Tuesdays & Thursdays after school and Saturday afternoons, and the Beach sprint training on Wednesdays, complement the surf and beach skills that they are introduced to at Sunday Nippers. The coaches can also provide advice that is appropriate for each age group and stage of development, around the type of endurance training and squad swimming that should be undertaken. Training sessions are not compulsory, but attendance will only improve their skills and fitness! Surf conditions are assessed prior to every training session and water safety personnel are always present.
The season kicks off every year with a 3-day training camp for Nippers in U9 and older in Sawtell, North Coast NSW. It is a great opportunity families to train & socialise together and life-long friendships and memories are made at this camp.
