Registrations of interest  to participate in 2024/2025 Nippers (waiting list) will open on August 1, 2024.

Point Leo SLSC has one of the largest Junior (Nipper) programs in Victoria which includes the Junior Surf Lifesaving Program (JSLP – late December to mid-January) and the Junior Surf Sports Program (JSSP – October to March) each year. Point Leo SLSC is a friendly, family club. We encourage all members to adopt this club spirit to ensure that Nippers is all about FUN!!

The JSLP equips Nippers (6-13 years of age) with the skills, confidence and knowledge to recognise and enjoy a safe beach and aquatic environment. We welcome all children of all skill levels, but strongly advise children 8 years and up have swimming experience. For detailed information on the JSLP click here or contact For new Nipper families wanting to join click here or email

The JSSP provides Nippers with additional fitness training opportunities with specific coaching on surf skills (board, swim, beach running and flags) that are important in becoming an effective lifesaver. The program also supports Nippers interested in state or even national surf lifesaving competition. A higher level of swimming proficiency is required to participate in this program. All JSSP participants must participate in the JSLP. For detailed information on the JSSP click here or contact
