Our Pool Rescue Program is a skills-based program that prepares our club members to compete in the Surf Life Saving New Zealand Pool Rescue Championship and regional events. All of which are hosted over the winter while the ocean is too cold to race in. In pool rescue, athletes learn various skills that include tube rescues, object recovery, underwater swimming, swimming with obstacles and fins. With these skills, athletes can race in an environment similar to competitive swimming but with an alternative set of races that utilise the skills listed above in individual and team formats. These skill-based sessions should be complement by participation in an external swim program to best prepare athletes for pool rescue competitions.
