Bush Nippers

Bush Nippers Education Program


Nippers is an iconic program for many Victorians which teaches lifesaving skills whilst extending swimming and water safety competencies. Due to the popularity of this program and limited delivery within coastal areas only, many Victorians are unable to participate.

This Bush Nippers pilot education program is heavily subsidised thanks to the generous support of the Yarra Ranges Council. Working with Life Saving Victoria, the program has been developed and will be provided at a small fee of $30 per person to eligible participants across the September school holidays, delivered by the Yarra Centre Aquatics Team.

  • · Be 5 – 14 years of age by midnight on August 2nd; and

  • · Provide media consent for image to be used on social media and other platforms (consideration    will be given if this is not possible)
