Open Water Wild Swimming Courses 2018

 Open Water Wild Swimming Introduction and Safety Courses 2018.

The SHAC are on a mission this year to get more people swimming in open water this year including junior swimmers. With Safety around water as our first priority we are running our New Aqua Safe Courses for both Junior Swimmers (8yrs - 14yrs old) and Adults new to open water wild swimming.

Junior Swimming Courses

All swimmers under the age of 14 will be required to complete The AquaSafe introduction to open water swimming course to be able to attend open and family swim sessions. This is a 5 hour course and contains elements of water rescue and safety, confidence in open water, stroke technique, first aid and swimmer awareness. The participants will receive the Aqua Safe Competence in Open Water Swimming and Safety Certificate once the course has been completed.  Any junior swimmer holding this certificate can then swim in our family and junior swim sessions on Friday Evenings and Sunday Mornings at a reduced rate of £5.00 per junior swimmer.
