2017 After School Cast Netting for Kids

Open to students in grades K-8.

This October, Sanibel Sea School is offering cast net throwing lessons for all ages. This is an after school program designed for kids interested in fishing to learn how to use cast nets for the first time or hone their existing skills. Cast netting techniques and sight fishing for forage fish will be covered, and we will visit different locations to test our throwing abilities. Students will build up their skills over a month in preparation to compete in The Bait Box’s annual Esperanza Woodring Memorial Cast Net Rodeo held on November 4th. We'll have special guest Ralph Woodring and the Bait Box Team join us during our last session to share their tips and tricks for throwing a cast net!

Sanibel Sea School will pick up students from the Sanibel Recreation Center at 3:30 PM and parent pick up will be at Sanibel Sea School (455 Periwinkle Way) at 5:30 PM. Parents are also welcome to drop off their students at Sanibel Sea School.

Price: $20 per day or $75 for the 4 class series

Every Florida kid should know how to surf! Sanibel Sea School will be offering after school surfing lessons this fall. During each session, we will teach proper paddling techniques, how to turn the surfboard, how to “pop up” (move from paddling to standing position), and how to catch a wave. After each session, students will go home with new skills and a greater appreciation for the ocean.

Sanibel Sea School will pick up students from the Sanibel Recreation Center at 3:15 PM and parent pick up will be at Sanibel Sea School (455 Periwinkle Way) at 5:30 PM. Parents are also welcome to drop off students who do not attend Sanibel Rec's after school program at Sanibel Sea School.
