Meet 8am Concrete Beach.

The goal for the day is to essentially run through the redesigned 2 day open water session for the basic class (in one day of course).

We are teaching all rescues in the lake and also reviewing/reinforcing some of the classroom content (which will given in an abbreviated zoom format) in the 'real world' rather than in groups in the classroom.

Come prepared to get wet, and have fun with fellow instructors.
