Instructor Courses

Created on Sunday, 28 August 2016 Written by Paula Richardson

NSVL will be running 2 courses in September to give instructors the
opportunity to gain RLSS teaching qualifications.  This is an excellent
progression for those who have taken the Assistant Teacher qualification,
though it is not required for candidates to have any previous
qualifications.  They will equip candidates to plan and lead Rookie and
Survive and Save sessions alongside a team of assistants.

The course details are below and are open to all members who meet the
relevant age requirements:

*Rookie Instructor Course*
Saturday 10th September 2016 (all day, times TBC)
Minimum age 16 years old

*Survive and Save Instructor Course*
Sunday 11th September (all day, times TBC)
Minimum age 17 years old
**Please note that candidates must complete 10 hours of teaching following
the course to gain the qualification.

NSVL relies on volunteers to run sessions and pass on their expertise to
younger members, therefore NSVL will cover the cost of these qualifications
for instructors who can commit to using them for the benefit of the club.
Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Sunday 4th September to register for either or
both of these courses.

Created on Saturday, 27 August 2016 Written by Paula Richardson

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.

 

Please email Paula on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to take part.
