WHAT IS ALBATROSS NIPPERS?
On its surface, the Albatross Nippers program is designed to allow children with special needs to experience surf lifesaving and essentially what it is to be a nipper on the Gold Coast. But the benefits are far greater than that.
What makes Albatross Nippers Unique?
Heading into its fifth Summer Nipper season, the Albatross Nippers has been able to better connect people with disabilities to the greater surf lifesaving and local community. Something that up until recently wasn’t able to be achieved.
Unlike other beach based special needs programs, the Albatross Nippers is not held on a special day, at a special time, at a special beach. Its conducted within the Nobby's Beach Sunday Nipper program. While this inclusivity is amazing for the children, it’s invaluable for the local community volunteers, and families.
