Been pondering this for over the summer for ours. Mainly as I'd like him to have more awareness of the beach, the sea and so on and also as I think it'd be a fun thing to do.And his swimming has really come on brilliantly of late and he's a much stronger swimmer now.
I was looking at Seacliff and was wondering if anyone had any experience of the club and the Nippers programme. I'm also going to get in touch with the co-ordinator in the next few weeks and see if there is a try out day to attend.
The only thing that does bother me is its Oct-March on Saturday afternoons from 1:30-4pm. That's a long afternoon in the sun/heat which isn't always ideal in the middle of summer.
Has anyone elses kids done Nippers or surf lifesaving and if so, how did you and your kids find it? Did it give the kids some good water safety skills and so on?
Thanks in advance.
