All children aged 5 to 12 that wish to participate in Woodside Nippers must complete a Preliminary Evaluation.
The Preliminary Evaluations are in place to ensure that participants are fit and able to meet the requirements of the Woodside Nippers Program.
The evaluations consist of a swim/glide and survival float component which may be conducted at the beach or in a pool. Your club may utilise third-party sign offs provided they are from a registered Learn to Swim provider. In this situation parents will need to provide evidence of the highest swimming level completed by their child in the form of a certificate.
Your club will advise you of their process regarding preliminary evaluation.
