Surfing WA has been introducing grommets to the surf for over 25 years.In Summer of 2011/12 we delivered the new national Weet-Bix SurfGroms program and had over 1000 frothing WA grommets join the program.
Now the program is used to introduce children between the ages of 5 – 12, wishing to start the fantastic sport of surfing on the weekends and school holidays.
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 can be taken for MiniGroms and SuperGroms.
Weet-Bix SurfGroms features 5 distinct skill levels, each with its own set of objectives and goals. Each level needs to be achieved before moving onto the next.
Level 1 is designed for complete beginners as an introduction to surfing.
Throughout the Weet-Bix SurfGroms program and each of the 5 skill levels, there is a significant focus on Ocean Awareness and Beach Safety.
Surf conditions, etiquette, first aid, and basic surf rescue skills have all been incorporated into the SurfGroms program.
