Trailer gets a new lease of life
Friday, 13 April 2012 16:41

Thanks to Colin Peterson the broken ski trailer has now been rebuilt and

will be back in operation this Sunday 15th April.

For the more observant of you there were three less ski's available
last Sunday due to the fact we had to borrow a ski trailer as one of
the clubs trailers snapped.

Fortunately over the Easter break Colin Peterson and his employer ARC
Steel Fabrications Ltd, Cardiff have kindly rebuilt the trailer and we
are all set to carry our usual 18 ski's this Sunday

The club would like to thank Colin and ARC for their generous
contribution to the club and also thanks to Jake Bremner for the loan
of his personal ski trailer.

Welsh Nipper Stillwater - 13th March
Wednesday, 26 January 2011 23:52


Nipper Information - 28th January 2011



Welsh Nipper Stillwater

This week we received the entry information for the Welsh Nipper Stillwater (pool based competition), which will be held at Wales National Pool, Swansea on 13th March.  Exact times are to be confirmed, but work on the basis of being at the pool from 8am until 6pm.  If your child would like to take part in the competition, we need to know as soon as possible, ideally this Friday 28/01 or Sunday 30/01, but certainly no later than Friday 11th February.  No entries will be accepted after Friday 11th February.  If your child wishes to compete, please complete the 'Nipper Entry Information' below. 

All entrants need to be able to complete the individual race competently.  The club will have points deducted if a competitor fails to finish.  That said, we would very much like to take a big team.  If in any doubt as to whether your child should take part / take part in a given event, then please speak with Liz Wong, Andy Wall or myself.

The cost for individual events (Obstacle, Flipper, Board) is £3 per event and the cost of a pair event is £4 (£2 each).  Team events will be paid for by the club, with teams picked on the day.

Competitors must have been born between 01/01/1998 and 31/12/2003.


Individual Events
- 50m Obstacle (born 00,01,02,03) or 100m Obstacle (born 98,99) Obstacle Swim (front crawl, swimming under the gates)

- 50m Manikin Carry (all ages) (25m swim, followed by 25m tow)

- 50m Flipper Race (all ages)

- 50m Board Race (all ages)


Pair Events

- 50m Board Rescue (paddle 25m, pick up patient, paddle 25m together)

- 100m Rescue Tube Race (50m swim by rescuer, who has flippers, collect patient, then tow patient 50m to finish)

Entry to the obstacle race is limited to 4 boys and 4 girls per age group (year).  Likewise, pairs in the Rescue Tube need to be from the same age group (year) and are restricted to 3 pairs (covering boys and girls).  If we get more Nippers than places available, the coaches will have final call on who is to compete.

Once we have worked out the pair events, we can work out who needs to pay what.



Nipper Entry Information

My child would like to compete at the Welsh Nipper Stillwater on 13th March.  I agree to pay the 'Type 1' fees no later than 11th February, and if applicable, the 'Type 2' fees when notified, but no later than 25th February.  I understand that these fees cannot be refunded in the event that my child doesn't compete, for whatever reason.

Cancelled - Nipper Training - Sunday 19th December
Saturday, 18 December 2010 13:43


Dear All,


With road conditions still treacherous and no signs of a significant improvement before tomorrow, we have decided to cancel both pool training and Nipper Nosh afterwards.

We feel that although some people may have been able to get to Fonty, for others it would be a struggle, and certainly not worth risking an accident.

Our current plan is to have Nipper Nosh on the first Sunday we are back in the New Year, being 9th January.


Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Rhoose Lifeguards.


Kind regards,


Alan and Liz

Carol Concert Cancelled - December 17th
Saturday, 04 December 2010 15:11

Dear All,

Due to the current and forecast weather conditions, we have taken the
decision to cancel the Carol Concert tonight.

Please accept our apologies, but this decision has been made taking
into account the safety of all those participating and attending, some
of which will be travelling several miles to the concert.

We still wish to donate presents to the NSPCC, so please either bring
them to training this Sunday (if it is not cancelled) or else to the
first training session in the New Year on 7th January.
Although after Christmas, the gifts will still be very appreciated by the NSPCC.

Pass this info on to anyone I may have missed.

*** Important - please check the website before coming training on
Sunday 19th December, as with heavy snow forecast tomorrow, it is
likely the session on Sunday will be cancelled. ***

Kind regards,

07711 - 629439
