March Club Meeting - Pool Safety Skills Session

Mar 20, 2024, 6:30 PM – 9:15 PM

Event: Safety Skills Practice (March Club Meeting) 

Location: North Clackamas Aquatic Center, 7300 SE Harmony Rd, Milwaukie, OR 97222

Date: Wednesday, March 20th, 2024

Time: 6:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.

Gear: Everyone in the pool must have the following gear to participate: (if you don't have it, you can't get in the pool) 

  1. Helmet
  2. PFD
  3. River Shoes or Sandles (such as Chaco, Keen or Teva's)

Description: This is a great time to bring your families out, update skills and get some refresher training from some extremely knowledgeable folks who have graciously donated their time.  This is a club meeting and there is no cost associated with this event, however you must be an OWA club member to attend. The Pool Session will begin promptly at 7:00PM and run to 9:00.  Please arrive early enough to be changed into your swimming gear and ready for the meeting to start at 7:00 pm. We will divide into groups and then rotate through the stations. 

Schedule looks like this:
7:00pm- Introductions 
7:30pm- 1st rotation
8:00pm- 2nd rotation
8:30pm- 3rd rotation
9:00pm- Gear breakdown and packing

Due to overwhelming participation by our volunteer instructors, and because of our limited time, there will be more stations than time permits for rotation.  We will attempt to get everyone though the stations they'd like to get through and I expect that there will be some interim floating between stations.  The stations will be:

Station 1 - Knot Tying - Railing walkway
Station 2 - Throw Bagging/Swimmers - Wave Pool
Station 3 - Light Cat Flipping - Dive Pool
Station 4 - Raft Flipping - Wave Pool
Station 5 - Mechanical Advantage - Deck Area
