Trials Evening 2018

Posted by Pat Brewer on 23 May 2018

During June, we will be holding two evenings for new members to have a free trial session. We run a waiting list so if you are interested in becoming a member, please contact us by email asap to book a place.

If we have places available, we hold other trials sessions, but our main intake is in September for all of our courses, so we can ensure members pass their lifesaving exams in time for our awards evening.

Every member has a trial session, which will include:-

  • 100 metres (5 Lengths) front crawl.
  • 60 metres (3 lengths) lifesaving backstroke.
  • 40 metres (2 lengths) side stroke.
  • 60 metres (3 lengths) breast stroke.
  • Tread water for one minute.
  • Surface dives - feet first touching the bottom with hand, head first picking up brick from the bottom (depth approx. 1.8 metres in pool)
  • Deep water entry (compact jump or straddle jump)

We accept that not everyone can do either lifesaving backstroke or sidestroke, which are not normal swimming lesson strokes, so these strokes are taught during our lifesaving lessons.

If you have suitable swimming ability, we will offer a place in the most suitable class according to age, ability and availability. We cannot guarantee to put friends together, or to be put in a particular class. Our instructors are able to judge abilities of swimming suitable to make good lifesavers and sometimes members will start in a lower class than some other members of the same age, in order to give them more chance to work on strokes etc.

We also take members who are working towards their Duke of Edinburgh Awards, but again we cannot guarantee to put friends together, or to put in a particular class
