To maintain safety and lifesaving standards, Surf Life Saving Australia has set a standard of proficiency that Woodside Nippers in Under 6 and above must achieve before being eligible to participate in water events or carnival events.
Your child will not be able to enter the water during Sunday sessions or sanctioned club training events until the proficiency is completed. While the club’s Woodside Nippers program is not a learn to swim program, if your child is unable to meet the requirements of their proficiency, please contact the Nipper Coordinator to discuss options available.
In addition to Preliminary Evaluations, if your child wishes to participate in any competitions, an additional competition evaluation must be completed. These assessments must be completed in an open water setting and therefore will be conducted with Age Group Managers during the sessions.
