Dolphins Junior Club

Fun on and off the water!

Based at our Eastbourne seafront location. Participate in fun beach and lake-based activity sessions, each week will be a different activity depending on the conditions. We may choose from sailing, windsurfing, paddle sport including kayaking, SUP and giant sup, team games, beach-based activities and loads more! This club is aimed at juniors from 6 to 12 who have no prior experience, or those who just want to have a fun Saturday morning with friends through the summer months.

This membership is for the younger ages, as an entry level club based on water play, fun and contact with the water sport, while under the supervision of qualified staff to give students a taste of the activities on offer so they can choose and specialise.
