For U8-U14 age groups this is a mandatory pool swim and float, which is held at Pittwater House heated pool prior to the start of the season.
For safety in the water, we need to know each child’s capabilities before water activities are undertaken. Once completed, the Water Safety to Junior Member ratio is 1:5. Any child not meeting the evaluation level will require a Water Safety ratio of 1:1 when involved in water activities (participation at the discretion of the Club).
This is a mandatory pool swim and float for U8 and above (U6 & U7 are not required to attend this evaluation)
The assessment will take 5 to 10 minutes pending numbers.
On the day volunteers will be asked to assist at each end of a lane.
The first assessment is usually held the last Friday of school holidays. If necessary, a second pool session is held the following Friday.
U8: 5:15pm – 5:45pm
U9 and Above: 5:45pm – 6:30pm
OH&S > Please bring a Swim Cap
We do encourage Nippers to attend the first pool session as 1:1 Water Safety is required for those not holding a current Preliminary Evaluation award.
If you miss both sessions the assessment will be held during Nippers at Nth Curl Curl ocean pool over the first few Nipper Sundays.
