On Tuesdays evenings during the summer months the club runs beach based training sessions at the club HQ at Durley Chine.
Rookies 17:00 – 18:30
Cadets and Adults 18:30 – 20:00
The sessions consist of various lifesaving core skill along side fitness and first aid knowledge. With this comes the ability to gain your National Vocational Beach Lifeguard Qualification.
For the 6 weeks I’m the summer holidays we run an extra sessions on Fridays nights in place of the usual Pool Training.
This is not an instructor led sessions but rather a time for club members to get in the water with various equipment and have some fun.
A bbq is then lit for your own food to be put on and we enjoy the fireworks at Bournemouth Pier.
Every year we also have a Boxing Day display in which the mayor comes down and we all have a bit of fun and (if brave enough) a swimwear dip.
The demonstration is open for all to watch and so don’t be shy about coming down even if you aren’t part of the club.
