Peregian prepares to make a splash this Nipper Season

The Peregian Beach Nipper program is preparing to kick start the 2019/20 Season with Sign on Days scheduled in early September.

Last year saw the return of the Nippers Program to Peregian with over 120 Nippers completing their age award accreditation in Surf Education.

Director of Peregian Brett Leckie said, “It is essential for kids of all ages to learn surf awareness at our local beaches.”

Not only is the program eligible for children from the age of 5 to 13 years, there are also opportunities for parents to participate in activities on the beach and in the water, while supporting their children.

Brett continued, “Last year was amazingly successful with more than 25 parents completing their Surf Rescue Certificate and Bronze Medallion course.”

A Peregian Open Day and BBQ launch will be held this coming Sunday 25 August from 3pm to 5pm for members of the community who would like to learn more about the program.

The start of the new season will give locals the chance to get involved and contribute. Join in on the fun at the Peregian Sign on Days which will be held at the Coolum Aquatic Centre on 1, 7 and 8 September, from 11am to 1pm.
