Lifeguarding and CPR Review Courses

For those on the team that are interested, JCCDC/HVCC will be running review courses for both Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED and CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer and Healthcare Provider on the weekend of April 26/27. As a reminder, regardless of your CPR certificate’s expiration date, NY State DOH will not accept it after one year so you will need to take a review course.

The lifeguarding review course (including CPR/AED) will take place on:

  • Saturday, April 26th from 9:00am- 12:00pm
  • Sunday, April 27th from 9:00am- 5:00pm

The CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer ONLY review course will take place on:

  • Saturday, April 26th from 9:00am- 12:00pm

To register, please call the JCCDC at (845) 471-0430 during business hours. The cost of the course is $200 for lifeguarding review (includes FA/CPR/AED) and $50 for CPRO review ONLY.

The course flyer can be found here (http://jccswim.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Lifeguarding-Review-Course-Spring-2014.pdf).

ESSL Championship 2014 Results

We would like to congratulate everyone on an excellent season and all of the ESSL Championship swimmers on their amazing swims. Results from this weekend’s Championship meet are now available on the “Stats” section of the website. For USA Swimming swimmers, since this was an observed meet, results were submitted to SWIMS.

Coach Mary left a light weight grey hoodie at the meet. If anyone happened to pick it up, please let us know.

Also we will be closing our end of season dinner head count soon. So that we can plan for food and supplies for our end of season dinner, we are asking that every family fill out the head count form now. The form is available on the website under “Sign Ups.” If you have not done so already, please complete the form within the next few days.

If you were added to a job but have a reason that you would be unable to complete the assigned job, please let us know. However, due to the low number of swimmers in each session, it may be difficult to find replacements.

Volunteers may also trade jobs amongst themselves if they so desire.
