COVID Information / Changes

  • Classes will have 5 mins break between each for staff to wipe equipment and for families to swap with less commotion
  • We appreciate this program starts a day at the beach, however we ask that where possible you bring less spectators, and arrive before the class and leave afterwards. Again, the benefit of this program is a family day out so this is a recommendation, not a rule
  • There will be a COVID marshal ensuring the change rooms remain clean and social distancing is practiced, particularly by parents when the tide is up and there is less room
  • We are limiting classes to 40 per time slot, so you will need to get in quick. Classes will book out in the first few hours. You will receive an email when classes open and we’ll be aiming at 9pm on the night of the 7th December
Please email for waitlist.
