Waveney Surf Life Saving Clubs’ Surf Cadet summer programme aims to educate 7-14 year olds about beach and water safety through a safe and fun practical activity programme.
We believe that the Surf Cadet programme gives children the tools and knowledge to be safer by the sea, and therefore for parents to feel at ease to allow them to have fun in the water.
During the session children will learn to bodysurf, dolphin dive, paddle a rescue board, identify waves, rip currents and other dangers as well as fun beach activities including ‘beach flags’, a fast and energetic sport event.
The sessions will cater for the ability of the group; the only pre-requisite is that the child must be between the age of 7-14 years and able to swim 50m unaided.
All our coaches are experienced in working with children and have full DBS checks and safeguarding training.
You don’t need any equipment to take part, and wet suits can be provided for the session.
