Swim Safe - Volunteers Needed!

ASA Swim Safe

The ASA and the RNLI are working together on a project called Swim Safe.

The 2013 pilot took place in Bude and was a fantastic success with over 2300 children taking part in the programme.  In 2014 the programme will be expanding to 3 locations across the country between Monday 28th July - Tuesday 26th August 2014 (please see below for site specific dates):

1. Bude Sea Pool, Bude, Cornwall
2. Boscombe Beach, Bournemouth 
3. Sandhaven Beach, South Shields, Tyne and Wyre 

The programme offers free improver swimming lessons and beach safety advice for children aged 7-14.  Most young people learn to swim in an indoor pool which is a safe and familiar environment.  Swim Safe gives young people the opportunity to test and improve their swimming ability in a different aquatic environment. 

Children are being offered the opportunity to attend the free 40 minute session which will include beach safety advice provided by RNLI lifeguards and up to 30 minutes in-water tuition with ASA accredited teachers. The programme is weather dependant and sessions will be adjusted accordingly.
