Tuesday, March 23rd, 2:00-3:30 p.m. - Part One: Aquatic Strategies: Helping You Stay Afloat!
Presenter: Erin Wilson, Program Manager, City of Estevan

Aquatics can feel intimidating at times. It’s a high-risk environment with often energetic but inexperienced young staff. There are lots of rules and liability and managing them can feel overwhelming. Then there is the challenge of finding the information and who to listen to! Erin will share some aquatic strategies that she has embraced over the years that will help you feel less like you are drowning.

Even if you have been around aquatics for many years, you will still find these strategies great reminders to a productive experience this season. Time will be spent on key areas such as hiring & qualifications, orientation and training, mentoring leaders, and dealing with what our role is as a supervisor/leader when young, inexperienced staff will undoubtedly make some mistakes.

Tuesday, March 30th, 2:00-3:30 p.m. - Part Two: Meet and Greet with Red Cross and Lifesaving Society
Presenters: Kyla Atkins, Swimming & Water Safety Representative Saskatchewan, Canadian Red Cross
Shelby Rushton, CEO, Lifesaving Society – Saskatchewan Branch
