Sea Rescue’s Pop-Up Survival Swimming Lessons returned to the Sea Point Pavilion Municipal Swimming Pool today after an extended winter break

Making sure that the lessons comply with Covid-19 safety regulations and best practice, the Pop-Up Survival Swimming programme kicked off in time for the 2020 summer season, providing invaluable up-skilling to the patrons of the Sea Point Pavillion swimming pool. Whilst the number of patrons at the pool was much lower than is to be expected for this time of the year, the 9 volunteer Survival Swimming Instructors up-skilled 12 adults and 26 children in the 4 basic skills of Survival Swimming. The total of 38 students learned breath-control, orientation, floating and kicking in pleasant 21 degree water in the pool.

The outside temperature was a comfortable 23 degrees and a light South-Easterly breeze kept the students and instructors cool throughout the day. The next Pop-Up Survival Swimming course at the Sea Point Pavillion swimming pool will be on Saturday the 5th of December where the Sea Rescue volunteer instructors will again provide free lessons to all patrons. If you are interested in volunteering as an instructor or administratively please email survivalswimming@searescue.org.za
