Qualifications/Competition

Wednesday 12:00—14:00

Swimming Pool

This is the pool time set aside for courses and qualifications. If you are interested in obtaining Bronze, Silver or Gold level Lifesaving, CPR, First Aid and Lifesaving sport qualifications, the Course Coordinator will be running classes at this time. Please feel free to attend even if you have no prior lifesaving experience. We will also be giving NPLQ training hours every month for the whole year. This will be free of charge for all members. Even though this is primarily for qualifications training, anyone is welcome to come join in or help out. It is likely the use of this training slot will change to general competition training when there are no qualifications taking place.

The Schedule

Monday 16:30—17:30

Swimming Pool

Our Monday training sessions are entirely focused on improving and maintaining fitness levels. A unique programme specifically designed to work on muscles required for the lifesaving Speed events will usually be written by the speeds Training Officer each week. We recognise that sometimes lectures get in the way of training sessions, however, it is still important to keep your fitness up.

Dry & First Aid

Thursday 18:00—20:00

Westwood Games Hall Lecture Theatre

Thursday is our dedicated dry training session which takes place in Westwood Games Hall's Lecture Theatre and is currently being taken by our SERC Training Officer. The first half of this session will be dedicated to general first aid skills ranging from learning how to tie slings to practicing CPR. The second half of this training session will be where we put those skills into practice with various dry team based SERCs (Simulated Emergency Response Competitions). Dry SERCs are also an important part of BULSCA competitions.

Competition

Saturday 10:30—12:30

Swimming Pool

This training session is our main competition training session. We regularly compete against other universities in the BULSCA league. During this session, we will cover speed events as well as practicing SERCs in the pool. If you are interested in competing at lifesaving, this would definitely be a good session to come to.
