Details

We are a local volunteer organisation dedicated to teaching disabled children to swim. We are looking for new volunteers before our sessions resume in September.

 

Most of our volunteers are aiming to gain valuable experience for future careers. Our swimming sessions are play-based, friendly, happy and relaxed - and our volunteers find the club really rewarding.

 

Swimming sessions last for an hour - usually from 3:00pm to 4:00pm each Sunday afternoon at Western Leisure Centre, Ely, Cardiff, CF5 5HJ during Cardiff School term time.

 

We normally start with individual work, where each swimmer is supported by a volunteer in practising new skills and techniques. We then progress to game-based activities where techniques are reinforced in a larger group. All children work together towards graded badges.

 

Volunteers will receive basic training in the Halliwick Method of Swimming Therapy, and there are opportunities to attend further courses.
