Professional Growth (Virtual Series)

This program will offer guidance and structure for teaching skills based quality aquatic lessons while meeting Covid-19 guidelines. The program will also address methods and lessons for both virtual and in-person learners. Topics to be addressed:
  • Social distancing and the use of personal protective equipment
  • Sanitizing and disinfecting common equipment and high traffic areas
  • Creating aquatic lessons and activities that meet the criteria for safety with COVID19.
  • Addressing both virtual and in-person lessons for students.
Who should attend: Secondary PE teachers who teach swimming and lifeguarding. This session is open to anyone who wishes to attend. INSHAPE members are eligible for PGP certification.
Why you should attend: The emergence of the coronavirus disease has raised questions among aquatic teachers about operation of facilities, student instruction, social distancing, disinfecting procedures, and lesson structure for swimming classes moving forward. This zoom call will attempt to provide answers and proactive solutions.
Registrants will receive further instructions closer to the event day. Can't attend on October 8th? Register for information on how to access a recording of the virtual event along with links to additional resources.
