Water Activities Training for Leaders/Volunteers – On-line Workshop @ Zoom

Water Activities Training for Leaders/Volunteers - On-line Workshop @ Zoom

Water Activities Theory Training Sept 2021

In order to proliferate access to internally led
adventurous activities in Farnham, the District is
delivering a programme of entry-level “Restricted
Permitting” so that leaders can offer these
programme opportunities to younger sections at
Garners Field.
Why this approach?
Most adventurous activities for water involve
considerable training effort and experience, typically
in support of programme delivery on major
waterways to the open sea. However, in the younger
sections, the norm is often to provide “taster
sessions” where an activity is offered for 30 minutes
in ultra-safe controlled conditions, and where
variables such as the participation of non-swimmers
and full emersion can be controlled and mitigated
quickly. As a result, the district is offering training and
restricted permit assessment so that these simple
taster sessions can be led by section leadership
teams with adequate and appropriate safety cover.
What is required?
• Participation in an on-line water activities, safety
and POR workshop Sunday 12th September 7PM
• Attendance at a practical session at Garners field
the morning of Saturday 18th September 10AM
What could you achieve?
• Lead a hands-on practical session that will be
assessed per discipline assessment check lists,
• If successful, a restricted permit recommendation
to deliver canoe, kayak and rafting activities at
Garners Field.
What is the point?
• Really simple: More adventure, more fun, better
programmes, enhanced member retention and a
leader recruitment opportunity!
After this, what next?
• If you know you want to do more in a specific
discipline, or even have existing certification, skills
and knowledge but have been “out of the game”
for a while, the district will provide opportunities
for you to refresh, re-certify or up-skill to the level
you want. In the past 24 months alone, more than
50 leaders in the district have qualified to offer
activities from Shooting to Scuba Diving and from
Narrow boating to Archery!
