Ages given are guidelines only to help us organise each week's program to suit the kids in the club each week - we are very flexible to take into account each child's needs and wishes.
Club Vass Kids and have their own shaded ‘hang-out zone' between the beach and the club. This is the base for all activities.
Kids' Clubs run Monday-Friday for 2.5 hours in the mornings and 3.5 hours in the afternoons.
Each week our experienced Kids Club staff organise a full program of events, tailored to suit the group each week. Typical activities include: windsurfing, SUPs (Stand Up Paddle Boards) games, competitions, arts & crafts, boat trips, snorkelling , chillout time with videos and much more.
At Club Vass we are keen to encourage youngsters to try windsurfing and our Kids' Clubs give them the perfect opportunity. We have a large range of dedicated kids' equipment and our instructors are experienced in teaching kids. Our kids' kit is so user friendly that we find that even the youngest can have a go, although progress will depend on size, strength and aptitude.
At this stage we want to develop enthusiasm for the sport, so windsurfing is taken very much at each child's pace. Once they progress from beginner to improver level, kids will have the opportunity to go out in light cross-shore (planing strength wind) where they will start to use the harness.
At intermediate level (using harness, planing comfortably, starting to get into footstraps) and wish to progress can transfer to Young Guns where windsurfing is prioritised as the main activity.
PLEASE NOTE: For safety reasons, transfer to Young Guns and kids being allowed to windsurf in strong winds is entirely at manager's/instructors' discretion.
Of course safety is a huge priority - we take the kids out in the gentle morning on-shore, they all wear buoyancy aids on the water and are under close supervision from their instructors and the rest of the beach team in the beach hut, rescue tower and safety boats.
We recommend each child comes equipped with a bag containing: sun-cream, rash-vest/sun suit, towel, change of clothes, drinks & snacks as required.
