ANZA Singapore Nippers is a not-for-profit, parent-led, volunteer group where children from 5-13 years of age can learn beach and ocean awareness through fun activities, and connect with the great outdoors.
We share our knowledge of typical Nippers events such as flags, wades, sprints, relays, run swim run, and board races. We also mix it up and throw in the odd game of tug-of-war, rubber thong flags, chain tiggy and paddle to Pirate Island.
Through all of this, we aim to promote confidence, sportsmanship, strength, speed, problem-solving, teamwork, safety, and respect for the environment. While we nurture awareness for our natural environment, we nurture awareness of others. While we build strength, we build strength of character.
Like a sausage roll and sauce, Nippers is a quintessential Australian activity. But we welcome participants from all countries to become mini lifesavers, and families of all nationalities to become a part of our community.
Season One – 11 March to 10 June 2018. (No session 1 April & 29 April)
Season Two – 2 September to 2 December 2018. ( No session 7 October & 4 November)
8:45am to 10:30am, Sunday morning
Tanjong Beach, Sentosa
Please be aware that ANZA Singapore Nippers is NOT A DROP-OFF ACTIVITY and we DO NOT TEACH CHILDREN HOW TO SWIM. Parents are expected to remain on the beach with their child for the duration of the session and help out when required. Participants need to complete and pass an age appropriate swim assessment before commencement.
