trainingTraining - March 2011

Well it is almost the end of the season – quick wasn’t it!  Over the past season we have run a number of Senior First Aid Courses, ARTC courses and Spinal Management courses.  I am happy to report that all courses have been well attended. 
I have scheduled a number of courses for the very early weeks of the 2011/2012 season and would encourage all members to check their awards and take up the opportunity to update their skills.

Junior Activities
The 2010/11 Junior Activities (JAs) program has now been running since 24thOctober 2010. So far we have had nine JAs days with three days remaining. Next day is 20/3/2011.

The beach safety theory and revisions sessions have well received by the juniors with reports back from parents of their children applying skills learnt at first aid incidents at schools and days at the beach where rips and their respective dangers have been identified.

The North Palm Beach surf shirts / rash vests have been popular with a good take up by the juniors. The rash vests, wide brim sun hats and compulsory application of sun-cream documented when parents sign their children supported by lessons in sun burn awareness ensure that the JAs program addresses its responsibility in relation sun safety. The JAs program coordinators would like to take this opportunity to thank Nth Palm Beach for supporting the rash vest initiative.

The JAs rescue boards have been a big hit with both the older juniors using them in the surf, and the younger ones paddling on them Pittwater. These boards have added another dimension to the JAs program with additional water skills being developed.

It is proposed that the final JAs day will involve iron-person events with various disciplines replicating the skills they have learnt throughout the year. The date for the JAs presentation night is yet to be finalized but will be advised at the earliest.
