Why not extend their skill range and confidence in a safe and fun environment with the Banana Boat OceanKids – coming to a beach near you this summer.
The Banana Boat OceanKids is an ocean swim which caters to children capable of swimming in the pool. What better way to encourage your children to have fun and be safe in the ocean than being surrounded by their peers and inspiring life guards.
Three distances mean that young swimmers can have the swim of their life at six of our annual events! The 100m swim is perfect for those starting out or finding their flippers in the ocean aged 7 and 8 years old, and the 200m distance is ideal for 9 and 10 year olds. If your 11 and 12 year old tadpole is looking for a bit more of a challenge have a go at the 300m distance.
The Jetstar Super Swim Squad has been an awesome fixture for the past 5 years as part of Jetstar’s sponsorship. Jetstar has chosen to move on this season so unfortunately there won’t be a Squad Camp but we still have loads of great rewards for swimmers in our Banana Boat OceanKids Series, including a finishers medal, photo and video!
