Come Swim with the Lifesavers
Whether it is raining, hailing or shining participants between 10 and 70 years+ are encouraged to join in and be active as you learn the skills to swim in the open water events (400m or 1500m) at the Channel 7 Brighton Jetty Classic.
All participants need to know how to swim. However, level of ability will be different for everyone.
These sessions commence on the first Saturday in November and will be held every Saturday leading up to the 7 Brighton Jetty Classic Event.
Sessions start on the beach at 2.45pm and finish at 3.45pm. Please register upstairs from 2.15pm at the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club upstairs.
So you can practice your skills, you are welcome to participate in the 4 o'clock BSLSC swim event, which is coordinated by the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club. If after three sessions you wish to continue in the Club 4pm Handicapped Swim you will be required to join the Club unless a member of another SLSC. To participate in the Club 4pm Swim you will also need to purchase a SLSA Rashie $15.00 from the BSLSC Uniform Shop (Insurance requirement for SLSA competition).
