Groups

Surf Life Saving sessions are split into different groups in order that the session is suited to the age of the participants.

Sandhoppers Ages 5-7

Sandhoppers is an introduction to Surf Life Saving. It is primarily beach based. However, alongside playing games, children learn about the beach environment and are able to understand the basic theoretical elements of lifeguarding.

 

As with all sessions, full risk assessments are undertaken prior to the session to determine the sea conditions. If the conditions are favourable and there is sufficient water cover, the children will be able to go in the sea but this may not be every week.

Nippers Ages 7-13

In the Nippers group, activities are mostly sea focussed although there are still some beach games that are undertaken to improve fitness and agility, also to reinforce certain lifeguard theory elements through fun.

 

Prior to every session, full risk assessments are undertaken to determine the sea conditions, positions of rips, and to remind children of the shore flag/hand signals in advance of going into the water.

Youths 14-18

​You don't have to be able to surf or to have had any Surf Life Saving experience. It's a great way to enjoy the sea with friends in a safe environment. Get fit and perhaps even enter regional or national competitions if you want to -it's entirely up to you. We are hoping to be able to start a Youth section so if you are interested in joining, let us know by emailing from the 'visit us' page.
