National Rescue Award for Teachers and Coaches 23rd/24th March

A number of swimmers and parents have recently successfully completed the course , which will help with lifeguarding club sessions.

This qualification, is an essential prerequisite to run any of our club sessions, and so we are always looking for any volunteers over 16yrs old who may wish to help.

Livewire are planning a further course, and hope that those that could not make the recent course, and would be happy to help or need more details should contact Maureen Appleby or Neil Musgrove. The course is planned to run on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March.
