The type of activities your child will be involved in include water activities such as swimming or board paddling, beach activities such as sprints and flags, lifesaving education and fun water/beach games.
Set up, 8.30am
Many hands make light work. Whilst we advertise our Woodside Nipper sessions as starting at 9.00am, we always appreciate having extra hands at the boatshed by 8.30am to assist with getting the equipment down to the beach.
Water safety briefing, 8.45am
All parents assisting with water safety need to attend a Water Safety Briefing prior to each session. Our Water Safety Officer will run through the conditions on the day and highlight any potential risks and how these will be managed. This briefing ensures everyone is on the same page when it comes to keeping our kids safe in the water.
Session begins, 9am
Children must be signed in by a parent or guardian. Please do not put caps on until your child has been signed in.
Session ends, 10am
All our Woodside Nippers must be signed in and out by a parent or guardian. Once your child has been signed out, their cap must be removed and the children become your responsibility. If we can’t see you at the end of the session your child will not be able to leave. Every Sunday our Nippers enjoy improving their board paddling skills. If your Nipper has paddles a board please make sure they carry it back to the boatshed, wash it and place it back in the correct location. Our Age Group Managers are not the ones paddling, so it’s not fair that they are left to carry all the boards back.
