Special Nippers 2021, our season has begun!

What a beautiful day to gather, learn beach safety and have fun with an inclusive, embracing community.

Our Special Nippers Program provides facilities, equipment and volunteers to assist kids and young adults with additional needs and a disability to access the beach and enjoy the ocean. Our 10 week long program began on Saturday 7th February when we were lucky enough to be joined by the Raiders Under 21s who were on the coast for a training weekend.

It was incredible to see the Raiders and our Special Nippers having a ball together on the beach. Our Special Nippers, their Families and our volunteers where all thrilled to be back together after a difficult 2020 where our season was cut short due to fires and Covid. Together and ready for some fun, we are so excited for our season ahead.

Volunteers are integral to the successful running of our Special Nippers program and we are in need of additional volunteers. We welcome anyone who is interested to join us! It really is the most beautiful community.
