How To Join/Get Involved

In the first week of term we will have two free taster sessions. No previous lifesaving skill is needed, and we only require that you can swim! These will be free to attend and will showcase the activities that we do as a club. If you are unable to make these sessions don’t worry, we are happy for you to come along to any of our usual training sessions. These will be on Monday 26th September, 19:30 – 21:00 at Goodwin Pool, and Wednesday 28th September 14:00 – 16:00 in View Room 4 at the Students Union. If you’d like more information please get in touch through email or facebook. For more information on university lifesaving in general, go to:
