Safeguarding children within the aquatic environment is one of the most important aspects of being in a swimming club and competing, and everyone who is involved with the club in anyway would find this course advantageous.
The committee have arranged a safeguarding course for CCSS club that will take place in Caerphilly leisure centre on Monday 27th February, 6-9 pm. This course is FREE to CCSS members, parents and committee.
