For the Love of Surfing – Stuart Beach
July 8, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
FREE SURF PROGRAM FOR SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS!
Come join Future 6 & enjoy some fun in the sun teaching children w/special needs how to surf!
For the Love of Surfing (FTLOS) is a free program developed by Future 6 Helping Hand geared towards teaching children with special needs how to surf in a fun and famliy friendly environment. Much love to our amazing sponsors and volunteers for giving us the means necessary to make this happen. We couldn’t do it without you.
Our friends from Children for Clean Water (subsidary of C4CW – Citizens for Clean Water) will also be joining us and setting up “the kid zone” with plenty of fun activities for ALL kids to ensure that there will be just as much fun in the sand as there is in the water!
We will need volunteers available on location around 8:30 am – 8:45 am to help get everything from the parking lot to the beach (boards, tents, coolers, tables etc). As soon as we have a table and the main tent up, we can start sign-ins.
Surfers and watermen alike are needed and appreciated to assist the children in the water. If you have not yet signed up and registered for a previous 2017 FTLOS event we will need an ID card such as a driver’s license or state issued ID. We are required by law to run backgrounds on all who interact with kids under 18. PM us if you have a concern so we can discuss what’s allowed and what’s not allowed by law. We want absolutely nothing more than to always consider the safety of our participants and we hope you understand. There will be three documents to sign:
1. Waiver good for the year
2. Background check form
3. Standard sign in sheet.
Again, please remember to bring your drivers license or state issued ID. We will have a quick 5-minute huddle prior to getting started with assigning volunteer pairs with kids.
While all children are welcome to come, the surfing portion of this particular program is for special needs children only.
Sign in will include a standard doc and waiver. As soon as a table and tent is popped up, we’re ready for you. The ladies in the tent will help keep separate lines for sign in. This is not a 1st come 1st serve thing to worry about. ALL kids will get their chance to have a fun time in the water. If necessary, we will rotate kids and boards as needed in time intervals.
LIFE JACKETS & FLOATIES
We have a limited supply of life jackets and floaties. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor please PM us on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll see you at the beach!#F6HelpingHand #Future6Official
