|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until January 17, 2019

City Nippers is a dynamic and interactive programme for children delivered by Surf Lifeguards which provides surf safety and beach awareness for 5 to 11 year olds.

The programmes will introduce your child to the open water environment and build their confidence in the sea so they can safely enjoy New Zealand’s favourite playground this summer.

This summer City Nippers is offering 3-5 day courses over the Christmas Holidays at 5 Auckland Beaches including St Heliers.
There will be two groups:

St Heliers Tadpoles – 5-7 year olds $125 for 5 sessions
St Heliers Nippers – 8-11 year olds $125 for 5 sessions

Each course consists of 5 vibrant fun-filled, 2-hour beach sessions. Surf Lifeguards will teach your children water safety rules and skills. Specific activities include:

• education on surf safety, sun smart, rips and waves
• beach sprints and fun relays
• wading, duck diving, body surfing and surf swimming
• how to use a body board correctly
• tube rescues

Parents can choose to assist with the water activities or just stay and watch their children. Lifeguards are not responsible for any child after the session ends and the child is signed out.
