The Northumberland and Durham Rookie Festival will take place on the 2nd October 2016 at Chester-le-Street swimming pool, starting at 10am. This will be a fun, friendly competition with Rookies from across the branch taking part. If you haven't yet taken part in a competition this is the perfect opportunity to have a go in a relaxed atmosphere and see what it's all about. The maximum age for this competition is 14 years old.
Rookies will take part in teams of 4 and we will be working on the skills needed for this competition throughout the pool sessions leading up to it so all Rookies will be well equipped to take part. Events are:
•Lifesaving stroke relay (frontcrawl, breaskstroke, lifesaving leg kick and side stroke)
•Lifesaving medley relay (swimming with fins and rescue tubes)
•Body board relay
•Rope throw relay
Entry is free.
