ASLSC has a dynamic Woodside Nipper Program. It is hoped that throughout the season Woodside Nippers will develop skills that will aid in both their enjoyment of the beach environment and their safety in doing so. By conducting events each week in the areas of sprints, flags, swim and board these children are developing skills that will improve their skills and fitness, aid them in their journey towards being Life Savers. The club aims to make these fun and non-threatening with a healthy mix of competition and participation. For those who enjoy the more competitive side of Surf Life Saving the club aims to provide pathways in the competitive environment.
ASLSC welcome Nippers aged 5-14 into the Woodside Nipper Program. Age groups are calculated from the age of the child at the start of the season; 03 November, 2019. For example: a child turning 10 in December is 9 at the start of the season and is therefore an U10 (despite being 10 for much of season).
Please note: it is not the aim of ASLSC to teach your children how to swim. We strongly recommend children participate in swim classes, either during the school term or holiday times. Vacation swimming lessons at a beach environment are recommended.
The Woodside Nipper program runs on Sundays throughout the season from 9.00am-11.00am. Be sure to arrive in time for your child to get prepared for the start of the session. Events START at 0900.
The season calendar has a description of the Woodside Nipper program for this season. It is expected that parents/carers remain on the beach throughout the duration ofWoodside Nipper activities each Sunday.
Details of all Woodside Nipper and Youth activities can be found on the calendar out soon.
