We all know that summer means swimming. Most programmes take their children out (if not to our rivers) then to the pool. This can be a very stressful for staff looking after the children. We wanted this time to be enjoyable so have booked Tracey Hickman from Swimming New Zealand to come along and give us some tips to ensure fun for all!
Swimming New Zealand provides training for those involved in learn to swim education. Their aim is to ensure swim teachers receive support and information and are recognised for the contribution they make in ensuring every New Zealander has the opportunity to learn to swim. They have a team of regionally based staff who are available to meet the training needs for all people in the community involved in teaching learn to swim. This includes poolside assistance.
Tracey is responsible for the overall day to day operations of the Education Business Unit as well as providing training for those involved in learn to swim education. Tracey started teaching “learn to swim” at the age of 14 and hasn't looked back. She is a fully qualified swim teacher holding the SNZ Swim Teacher Award, National Certificate in Swim Teaching in Early Childhood, School Age & Adult and Teaching Swimmers with Disabilities.
