Did you know?
Swimming is a great form of exercise for the whole body. The swimming pool provides a great environment for warming up or cooling down after a gym workout but is also a very effective exercise in its own right. The water provides additional resistance for your muscle groups to work against and supports some of your body weight reducing the strain on your joints.
A gentle swim can burn over 200 Kcal in half an hour and regular weekly swimming can lead to improved sleep patterns and lower stress levels.
Littlehampton Wave Life Saving Club
Interested in learning self-survival skills and how to rescue someone from drowning? Then why not join the Littlehampton Wave Life Saving club to learn these invaluable skills.
General lifesaving tuition using the Survive and Save syllabus of RLSS takes place on a Wednesday evening for both adults and students over 12 years of age. Activity times at Littlehampton Wave are:
- Water Skills - in 2 lanes - (7.00pm – 7.45pm)
- Resuscitation and theory - (usually 7.45pm – 8.30pm)
There is a maximum number of 12 places available per session. Both theory and practical sections are compulsory elements of the exam and thus attendance at both training sessions on a regular basis is vital.
