trevorI’m Jackie and I teach the Survive & Save group.  I first started lifesaving when I was at Uni and kept it up for several years – using my training once a year to supervise swimming at a camping holiday for women with disabilities.  After a long gap (when I had 2 children), I was ‘sucked’ back into lifesaving when my daughter began training and the club was looking for people to train as instructors.  I’ve been an instructor for over 6 years and I enjoy the challenge of teaching first aid, water-safety, self-rescue and water rescue skills in a (hopefully) fun way.  Being part of KLSC is fun because we offer our members so many opportunities by not just running pool based sessions, but open water training and the opportunity to go to competitions as well.
