Swimming training

Cadets from 1368 have been doing some swimming training in readiness for Wing competition and to stop them drowning if they fall into water. Engagement from newbies is encouraging and a nice balance of different ages, sexes and abilities with staff also stepping up to help. Pretty good numbers on sessions, 20-25 cadets with regulars but also some dipping in and out. 

This has been a opportunity for those who can already swim to push to improve their individual abilities and get their Intermediate and Advanced Swimming proficiencies by doing regular training sessions, and also to make sure all our cadets have their basic swimming proficiencies to enable them to take part in water-based activities such as kayaking, that may come up during the year. Will also help if we do some adventure training camps that include gorge walking.
