What should my youth wear?

Dress according to the sun and weather. Participants should be prepared to be outside for 3 hours in any weather (except thunderstorms). Youth should have comfortable footwear that can get wet, no flip-flops. A swimsuit and towel is recommended. A face mask will be required during meeting times and when unable to maintain social distance.

What should my youth bring?

Day pack, water bottle, sun glasses, sun protection, towel, and a snack. Youth can bring a cell phone for communication during pick-up times only, but will be required to keep in a waterproof container or bag. The NSRWA can provide a locked space for any valuables. The NSRWA will provide all equipment necessary for the events including paddles, personal floatation devices (PFDs), and kayaks. Youth can bring their own PFDs, however they must be US Coast Guard approved, in good serviceable condition, and properly fitting. NSRWA staff leader will carefully inspect the youth’s own PFD to ensure it meets safety protocol. PFDs must be worn and buckled at all times during, on, or near water events.

What if there is inclement weather, and what is the cancellation policy? Is there a refund for a cancelled day?

Safety is the top priority! The NSRWA will cancel or reschedule events due to a chance of thunderstorms or serious weather. Sorry no refunds. Parents and guardians will be notified the day before, or morning of the scheduled program of any cancellations. An instructor will be present at the scheduled drop-off location to inform parents/guardians in the event of inclement weather.

How does Drop-off and Pick-up work?

An NSRWA staff person will be at the NSRWA Office at 214 South St. Norwell, MA. Do not drop-off or pick-up youth without verbally communicating with the NSRWA staff member. Pick-up will be at 12:00pm for each day, and the location will be the same as the drop-off location. The NSRWA staff will make a point to check-in with parents/guardians with any updates, behavioral issues, or relevant information. Please communicate with NSRWA staff leader if you plan on having someone other than yourself pick up your youth at the end of the day.
