South Gippsland SPLASH would like to introduce you to a new program that the centre will be offering in Term 3 2017 for older adults called the Grey Medallion Program.
The Grey Medallion program is a Royal Life Saving water safety and lifesaving skills initiative for older adults. It aims to encourage a healthy, independent and active lifestyle through the development of essential skills in order to participate in aquatic recreation activities safely.
This practical program provides older adults with personal survival techniques, improved swimming skills, knowledge and skills to deal with emergency situations and a thorough understanding of water safety, in order to reduce the likelihood of drowning. The program is inclusive of all abilities, including non-swimmers and is open to anyone aged 55 plus.
The four Grey Medallion modules are:
- Water Safety Knowledge (theory)
- Resuscitation and Emergency Care (theory and practical)
- Aquatic Exercise (theory and practical)
- Personal Survival and Lifesaving Skills (theory and practical)
SPLASH will be holding 2 information sessions;
- Tuesday 27th June 10.30am – 11.30am
- Friday 7th July 10.30am – 11.30am
The session will provide further information about the program and outcomes that can be expected.
