Endorsed Swim School instructors get skilled up

5 September 2018

30 Royal Life Saving Endorsed Swim School coordinators and staff attended a professional development session run by Royal Life Saving WA with guest presenter Fiona Njirich recently, expanding on their already vast working knowledge of swimming and water safety.

This session focused on the Butterfly and Breaststroke techniques and ways to ensure these are taught correctly. The highly experienced and knowledgeable presenter, Fiona, provided insight into ways to overcome many of the common faults seen with these strokes.

Fiona also broke down the barriers to introducing butterfly and provided detailed drills and information about how to do this effectively early in the student's aquatic education.

Coordinators and staff from the Endorsed Swim School network attended, including representatives from Alpha & Omega Swimming, Armadale Aquatic Centre, Bayswater Waves, Belmont Oasis, Bold Park Aquatic Centre, Definition Swim School, HBF Arena & HBF Stadium Swim School, Just Add Water Swimming, Kwinana Recquatic, Leisurepark Balga, Rockingham Aquatic Centre, Scarborough Beach Pool, Swan Active Ballajura, Swan Active Midland, Terry Tyzack Aquatic Centre and Wanneroo Aquamotion.
