About this course:
A fun session on the water at the Phoenix Outdoor Centre. The coaches will provide a full safety briefing for the day’s activities and kit you out with buoyancy aids, paddles and a water craft. After a short land based session learning how to use the equipment, the coaches will get you out onto the Welsh Harp reservoir, in the safety end of the harbour area and teach a few strokes to get you moving around. Depending on weather conditions, we hope to do a short trip around the reservoir, have a few games and races.
Must be able to swim 10m in activity clothing wearing a buoyancy aid or 25m without.
Must bring a complete change of clothes including footwear – you will get wet!
You will also need to provide details of any health or dietary needs.
All users should bring suntan lotion and water in a plastic bottle. It is a requirement that all participants bring a bottle of water as this is a sport based activity.
Anyone who needs to wear glasses should bring a method of holding them.
