Fun and interactive, our SurfKids program is a great way to build both children and parents skills and confidence in the beach environment.

SurfKids is a six-week course run on Saturday mornings designed to educate children and parents on ways to enjoy the beach safely. 
Conducted by fully qualified surf lifesavers, the SurfKids program for children 5 to 7 years aims to deliver the following outcomes:
Personal Safety Understand basic safety practices: demonstrate attracting attention, importance of having an adult present when in the water
Beach Awareness Understand the types of animals that we share the beach with, identify dangerous animals
Patrol Identify what a Lifesaver does, identify red and yellow flags and what they mean
Sun Safety Understand the meaning of Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide
Water Confidence Wade in and out of the water with confidence, catch waves and duck dive

An important note for parents and guardians SurfKids requires parent/guardian participation in the class and for you to remain with your child at all times. Be sure to dress appropriately for this involvement! Please make alternative arrangements for the supervision of other children/siblings during the class. If conditions are unsuitable for swimming, the class will still proceed with the focus being on beach and surf awareness activities.
