When they are in the water there is no disability. They are just the same as everyone else. And just seeing their smiles, it is just priceless.
Starfish nippers is one of the few opportunities as a parent with a disability, to network with other parents that face the same issues.
We’ve had an awesome time.
It really is very easy to run, and it is fantastic to see the Starfish Nippers learn and develop their skills.
I’m so proud of our volunteers for making it all possible.
I think the Starfish Nippers absolutely love the program, it lets them get involved with the Nippers program and they’ve never been able to do that before.
Starfish Nippers is a fantastic innovation.
It is allowing some children who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate the opportunity to get involved.
My son Jared loves the water and loves the one on one attention. He has learnt so much.
The Starfish Nipper Program is a fantastic way to promote diversity and celebrate the differences of individuals at your Life Saving Club.
There are a number of clubs around Australia that are running the Starfish Nipper Program at their club, you can too. Contact us today to get the ball rolling.
