Pirates Lifesaving Club Nipper Programme
The Pirates Nipper program is a long-standing trandition at PIrates Lifesaving Club and the club boasts being one of the first clubs in South Africa to introduce the Nipper program to lifesaving. In fact, Pirates Lifesaving Club is the oldest lifesaving club in the country and has a rich history of South African lifesavers that have risen through the ranks.
Situated on arguably Durban’s finest stretch of beach, Pirates releases its Nippers onto the beach each Sunday morning with the sole purpose for them to have fun and learn valuable life lesson in a program that is second to no other sport.
Split across 4 different age groups, our Nipper program caters for ages 7 through to 14 under the guidance of our experienced coaches. From here, the Nippers graduate to the older age group as Junior Life Guards.
