A typical Sunday morning at Junior Surf
Sunday at Mairangi Bay starts by signing in with your age group managers at the time specified in the table below. The children then participate in a variety of activities, depending on age groups and abilities, which include:
- Theoretical surf safety and beach knowledge as specified by SLSNZ
- Beach Sprints and Relays
- Beach flags
- Swimming and wading
- Bodyboard and board paddling
- Team games
The emphasis for the Sunday sessions is for the children to have FUN, while gaining confidence in and around the water. In addition they learn valuable skills that lead on to them becoming fully qualified patrolling lifeguards. The program relies on parents helping to coach and supervise on the beach and we expect one parent to stay for the entire session.
At the end of the session, if a child wishes to return to the water they must be supervised by a parent.
Please note an alternative program will be run in poor weather or in extreme cases, the session will be cancelled.
