Welcome to our new Nipper families and a big thank you to our returning Nipper families who continue to show commitment and enthusiasm within our junior program! The TH&C Junior Activities Committee hopes you have a summer of fun and friendships on beautiful Greenmount Beach.
TH&C Nippers is the oldest Nippers program in Queensland. It was founded on 13th November, 1966 by a group of fathers who wanted their kids involved in the club. Alan Hicking, our Club Patron was one of the foundation members and along with his extended family, continues to be an integral part of our Club. Our Junior Activities program offers young people a fun and active lifestyle choice, as well as an opportunity for learning and competition in beach and water-based activities.
Nippers are taught everything from sun and surf safety, beach sprints and flags, board paddling and swimming, all the way to lifesaving skills like CPR and water rescues. What can be better than seeing families together on a Sunday morning, having fun on the beach while learning skills?! Nippers not only gives us all an appreciation and understanding of our wonderful ocean environment, but also provides skills to our young people which one day might lead to them saving a life or preventing a drowning.
Our Junior Activities Program is coordinated and run by a group of dedicated parent and community volunteers, along with support from Club Administration and Coaches. The program cannot function without volunteers including Age Managers, Water Safety, Carnival Officials and BBQ/Raffle helpers. There is a volunteer option for every parent, no matter what your skill or ability, and we respectfully ask that you nominate to help when and wherever you can.
Registrations for 2023/24 are now open for new and renewing memberships.
Our Nippers program runs Sunday mornings from 8:00am to 10:00am (QLD time) from October to March.
