Within the championships will be formed Teams of Nipper and Youth members working together to win the coveted team challenge followed by an individual final race.
We will be lighting the BBQ so leave your picnics at home and come join in.
All children (youth and nippers) will be asked to attend between 1-5pm – please let us know in advance if you are taking part – email our membership secretary. Ideally we would like to split them into 5 teams, of approximately 16 in a team (aged between 2000 and 2008 – so a boy and girl from each age group)
Each Team will have a team captain per team – plus an adult team manager per team.
During this first half hour, the teams can start to organise themselves into who is doing which events and groupings.
Between 1.30-3.30pm we will do a range of team events including: Relay Sprints Board Rescue (4 heats – each team to enter 2 pairs into each heat) Tube Rescue (4 heats – each team to enter 2 pairs into each heat) Various relay races
Points will be awarded to winning team, down to 1 point for last place.
Between 3.30-5pm we will run the individual challenge – very different to previous years, but an event that should cover all skills that the kids learn to be a Lifeguard Challenge (swim, run, board – order may change depending on conditions on the day).
We will run 3 different events/lengths, starting first with the short one
Prizegiving and a great BBQ will follow – we look forward to seeing you there.
Lets pray for sunshine and small waves
