Please note:

Pool Proficiency Swim:

The Sandon Point SLSC Junior Committee asks every child in the U6’s to U14’s age groups to attempt to complete the Preliminary Skills Evaluation. Renewals and New Applications will not be completed until the Proficiency Swim has been certified.

Nippers U6’s to U14’s are required to attend the Sandon Point Proficiency Swim. See above proficiency dates.


All water events at both fortnightly junior activities and carnivals are monitored by proficient lifesavers. Any parent wishing to be involved in water safety must be a current financial member and have a Surf Bronze Medallion or Surf Rescue Certificate.


Board Training

Children in the Under 9-14 age groups are welcome to join in board training sessions. The training is designed not only for juniors intending to compete in carnivals but also for other juniors who just want to improve their skills and confidence in the surf. Remember, practice makes perfect and at the same time participants gain fitness by training. In the interest of safety, children must meet junior competition qualification requirements to be eligible to attend board training. This rule will be strictly enforced. A Board Training Code of Conduct/Contract will have to be read, agreed to and signed by both child and parent BEFORE they can participate in board training. Each child must have an adult present at board training to sign the child in and sign the child out in an attendance book. If a child is not signed in they will not be able to participate. This is to ensure the safety of the children. (Any parent that is a bronze holder would be encouraged to help with water safety.)

Every child must have a high visibility singlet to attend board training. No high VIS vest no entering the water.

For safety reasons, each nipper MUST be signed in and signed out by their respective parent or guardian before they can participate in board training. The sign in register will be down at the beach in front of the surf club.

Children should bring goggles if they use them for swimming and if they have one, a wetsuit is handy for the early part of the season (either a springy or steamer). No boards are to be taken from clubhouse without Management committee permission.

To participate in board training during the 2019-2020 season and if you have any queries please contact Cameron Ward by email nippers@sandonpointsurfclub.org.au
