The training a lifeguard undergoes can accumulate mounds of stress, but in the long run, the training can save a life of a victim. Being a lifeguard comes with frequent pros and cons but all in all, lifeguarding is a great summer job for high school students. The schedule is also very flexible for guards with busy summer’s. Although pay in the beginning isn 't the best, as the summers continue the pay will increase. The skills one learns as a lifeguard are some that will stick with a guard forever and can apply to their everyday
She gladly replied with yes. At first, I was really slow, but under Christina’s help, I became faster in swimming. She stayed after practice with me and taught me how to improve in my freestyle, my diving, and my flip-turns. It was hard work, and we were both exhausted after practice, but she told me if I kept this up, I could go to meets. After all of the training sessions, I felt ready to go to a meet.
I’m going to try harder in the future to keep some ideas to myself and let the member come to conclusions on their own. The past five weeks of the Chief Petty Officer Academy has been a valuable experience. I’ve learned many helpful things and I thing I can make an impact of the crew with a commitment to physical fitness, changing some behaviors that were described in the LPI 360 survey, and by coaching our crew members who need assistance. I know missing half a patrol is a burden on my supervisors, subordinates and peers, but I’m certain if will be worth
That’s what makes being a Physical Therapist so great; the atmosphere is always positive because everyone is trying to improve, even if a little help is needed. I use the knowledge I learned in college and even when I was a patient to give my patients the best care possible for their specific injuries. When my patients are finally recovered, I get an amazing feeling because I helped them get back on their feet, sometimes literally. I was once in the shoes of my patients. The summer before eleventh grade, I broke my ankle and I was determined to get better as fast as I could.
Jerry has matured greatly during the course of the story. he wanted to impress the other boys by swimming through the tunnel they all swam through. So he told his mother that he needed swimming goggles. So she took him to the store and he grabbed the goggles and ran back to the swimming spot to attempt the long swim through the tunnel. He practiced every day learning independince from his mothter.
The school was great, even if it was the only one in the deep sea trenches. The school is not that big but school was school. Tim and all the students had to be very careful and quit when they all went to school. There were dangerous predators left, right, up, down and all around. Blenny, one fish student, last month decided to swim as fast as he could to the school and swam right into a predators mouth.
The few minutes before jumping into the pool was rough, having to convince myself to get in, but the second I reached the bottom of the pool I felt an instant relief. I knew that for the next two hours I didn’t have to worry about my essay that I haven’t started or the drama my friends made that day. I knew the only thing I had to focus on was playing, and I knew I was able to do that. I recall even on the worst of days I would get into the water, swimming aggressively, and shooting the ball like I was trying to take off the goalies head, but not even thirty minutes into a practice you would see a giant smile on my face. Playing made me so happy, and I knew that no matter what challenge I was facing I could go to water polo to clear my head, and give me a place to just let it all
In past years, my high school swim team has never designated two individuals to be team captains. However, this year my coach decided that our team needed a girl and boy who could step up and lead the team when necessary. As team captain, I believe that it is important that we give back to our community as a team. Not only are we taking time to volunteer, but we also grow closer to the people on our team. So far this school year we all woke up as early as five o’clock in the morning to set up for and volunteer at the Plano Balloon Festival 5K/1K.
During that summer I worked as a lifeguard and office person at the Pascack Valley Swim Club. Working at the pool didn’t seem like fun to me, but I was wrong. This pool is where I have met so many great people and have made so many memories. In 2015 the pool opened up a swim camp. When I was asked to work as a counselor I wanted to say no because who wants to spend their last weeks of summer like that.
A few years ago my brother and I joined karate. We both set our eyes on one goal; earning our black belt. Though the road would be long and treacherous, we both accomplished our goal; and in doing so I also learned something that affects me every day . I believe that I can do anything that I set my mind to. One early Saturday morning, I stepped out of my bed for weekend training.This training started about two months before our black belt testing and would continue until that day on every staurday.
