Information for all Omanu parents with kids 8 years and over wanting to use a knee board this year.
The junior surf instructors are all looking forward to the start of the season. As always we are really looking forward to teaching the kids new safety and competition skills in the ocean, and to use a knee board your kids need to have their 200 meter badge. This year there are 2 ways the kids can do this ...
1. They can get their own swim instructors or coaches to write a note to Omanu confirming they can swim 200 meters in 7 minutes and then tread water for 1 minute afterwards.
2. On Sunday 12th of November the kids have the option of going to the Mount College pool where a swim instructor has kindly offered to help out and will carry out the assessments.
*If your kids would like to do the assessment on the 12th can you please ensure they are practicing now so that they can get the badge at the start of the season. And if your kids are ready to get the assessment done with their own instructor can you please make sure this is done before the start of the surf season.
The 12th will not be the only opportunity to get the badge, and if any of you have kids getting their 200 meter badge for the first time and have any questions, do give Jimmy a call on 0210 215 3366.
