Our Oceans Programme is for all U11 - U14 children (must be at least 10 years old as of 30 September 2023) looking to extend their water and board skill confidence through our Programme with the goal to compete at Oceans, held at Mount Maunganui Main Beach 22-25th February 2024.

  • Athletes will require their 200m swim badge signed off by their coach prior to attending training and provide a copy of the time to the office please. More info on 200m badges here.

We ask that over the course of the season athletes are committed to attending carnivals in the build up to the annual Oceans event at the end of the season.  Some of the skills that our athletes can expect to develop are; 

  • Board Paddling 
  • Surf Swimming
  • Rescue Events (tube and board rescue)
  • Beach Events – sprinting, beach flags and distance running
  • Team Events – tube and board rescue and relays
