NIPPERS SURF SPORTS SQUAD:
For those children aged 10-13 who wish to improve their surf skills and be more competitive, there is a coaching programme available Monday – Friday afternoons. The Queensland State Titles are held in Mid-March and are the panicle event each season for this age group.
Our surf sports programme is designed to cater for all members of the club across all age groups, levels of competency and disciplines. It helps athletes achieve their individual social and competitive needs. The programme also provides pathways for all members to become coaches, managers and surf sport strategists. The program is designed to be progressive throughout the weekly cycles and will flow from season to season, with the focus on fostering the growth and development of the athletes involved in the program both competitively and socially. Sequential skill development and pathway identification and tracking is critical and the development of athlete driven individual performance plans and coach monitoring tools is also vital to establishing the foundation for accountability and engagement with the by-product being performance and athlete satisfaction.
The coaching programme covers annual training cycles focusing towards the Australian National Titles in April and longer term, the World Surf Life Saving Championships in the Netherlands in 2016. The programme’s focus is on fostering the growth and development of the athletes, coaches and managers involved in the program. This helps support the mutual competitive and social goals of The Currumbin Beach Vikings Surf Club and our members. During the winter months the coaching focus is also directed at swim fitness, skill development and pool rescue practice in the swimming pool culminating with the Australian Pool Rescue Championships in August and World Championships in September.
