Thank you.
FAQ:
What is the pre-qual swim: Pre-qual swim is 200m in 5min or less.
Are there any other qualification swims: Yes, on assessment you will need to complete 100m Run / 100m Swim / 100m Run course in 5min. We will be practicing this during the course to make sure you are all comfortable with this.
Will I be required to attend all days of training?: Please see the above not on compulsory attendance. We have run courses in the past where we are advised midway through the course that they are unable to make a date. If you cannot commit to these compulsory dates, you will be asked to defer to the next available course. Hopefully, you can understand that with ~ 24 participants and limited trainers we need to keep moving the group, we cannot stop to do catchup training for individuals that miss sessions.
When will I be given access to the Online Training Portal?: This will be sent to you as soon as registration closes. If the course is closed earlier due to reaching max numbers, we will release these instructions and access earlier.

Any other questions you have please ask admin (Jess) or message Jeff Baxter.

We look forward to seeing our next group of SRC’s on the first day 26th April, and following your journey through the course, assessment and then onto the beach as our newest patrolling members of Sorrento SLSC!
