Bilgola Cadet Program

The Club operates a cadet programme to provide activities for boys and girls who have finished with the junior Nippers and are not yet qualified to participate in Senior activities. Most cadets range in age from 14 to 16.

Their time on the beach is occupied by learning more advanced surf skills and rescue training, interspersed with supervised fun beach activities. Qualified trainers for boards and skis are on hand each Sunday morning to provide help for beginners through to the advanced.

We work towards making sure that each cadet achieves their Bronze Medallion and IRB Crewman certificates. With these awards they can participate fully on beach patrols which they are encouraged to do. 

But it’s not all serious, the cadets have a variety of activities on offer. There’s beach volleyball, snorkelling, beach cricket, surfing comp (all levels) and a 2 day cadet camping weekend is organised for late in the season.

The cadet programme attracts people from a wide geographic area, with half coming from north west suburbs, some from as far away as Windsor. Cadets meet on Sunday mornings at 9am for a couple of hours. Our season runs from mid October to mid March.
