WeetBix SurfGroms caters to 5-12 year olds, all around Australia. Here’s how...
Whilst the younger surfers and paddlers are still developing fundamental movements such as balance, agility and coordination; the older kids are far more developed both mentally and physically, requiring a different approach when learning new skills.
In order to successfully engage such a broad audience, Weet-Bix SurfGroms has been developed with 2 distinct age categories and 5 seperate skill levels:
Weet-Bix SurfGroms incorporates the following two age categories:
- MiniGroms (5-8 years old)
- SuperGroms (9-12 years old)
Although both categories work towards the same skill levels and objectives, a different learning approach will be taken for MiniGroms and SuperGroms.
A variety of activities, games and lessons are included in the program that cater to both age groups, however, some learning materials differ between the two groups to suit the MiniGroms development and maturity.
Weet-Bix SurfGroms receive:
Every child signing up will receive a great Rip Curl backpack bursting with surfing merchandise including a rash-vest, Rip Curl Towel, Weet-Bix plastic bowl and GSI Surfboard Guide.
