A typical Sunday morning at Junior Surf
Junior Surf all begins with our Sunday Junior Club Day. This is where families come together to join as a community, learning water safety, being sun smart and volunteering support where necessary on the day. Be it water safety for your child’s group that morning or assisting at the BBQ for that well deserved sausage sizzle.
Sunday Club Days at Mairangi Bay typically start by signing in with 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 Club day 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 at least 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.
To ensure we meet the needs of all the Junior members and to co-ordinate sign in/sign out and water safety we need more helpers.
At registration please indicate if you are available to assist with coaching, water safety, or as a co-ordinator for any of the sessions.
