More SwimSafe Venues Confirmed in the North East for 2016

March 23rd 2016
Swim Safe is returning for 2016 and will be at Sandhaven, South Shields and Scarborough in the North East. The ASA, the national governing body for swimming in England and the RNLI, the charity that saves lives at sea, have teamed up again for another year to run the programme.

Swim Safe is an annual programme of improver swimming tuition and water safety sessions for all 7–14 year olds at beaches and lakes across England. And the best thing about Swim Safe is that it is FREE to attend. Whether by the sea, river or lake, the skills involved in keeping safe in open water are different to those in an indoor pool, where most swimming lessons take place.

What’s included?
Swim Safe provides the opportunity for children to enjoy a fun, structured swimming session at a choice of open water locations – and learn all about how to stay safe.
1.       Beach safety advice provided by RNLI lifeguards
2.       Up to 30 minutes in-water tuition with ASA accredited swimming teachers.

Who can attend?
Children aged between 7-14 years. They must be able to swim a minimum of 25 metres to take part.

Last year, Swim Safe was attended by 3,600 children with an average of 10 children attending each session across five weeks. To book a place on a session, please click here BOOK YOUR SWIMSAFE SESSION NOW!
