Whether by the sea, river or lake, the skills involved in keeping safe in open water are different to those in an indoor pool, where most swimming lessons take place.
That’s why the ASA, the national governing body for swimming in England and the RNLI, the charity that saves lives at sea, want to tell you about Swim Safe.
Swim Safe is an annual programme of improver swimming tuition and water safety sessions for all 7–14 year olds at beaches and lakes across England. And the best thing about Swim Safe is that it is FREE to attend
Please visit http://www.swimming.org/swimsafe/all-about-swim-safe/ for further information, to view a promotional video and detail on how to book.
Attached is a flyer for the location in the Northwest; Windermere, other locations are across the country. If you’re on holiday or on a day trip why not consider taking part.
If your club swimmers are interested in open water swimming this may help as an introduction to the open water covering water safety and swimming tuition in a fun and safe environment.
Keep an eye out here for any news and announcements to do with the club.
