To extend the social nature of the group, most years we have at least one short break overseas for regular members, with friends and partners welcome to join us. In the year's we attend competitions elsewhere in the UK, many regular members and partners come along to support us, and enjoy a weekend away.
We provide our own lifeguards for the majority of our sessions. These are regular Shoals members, who have had their lifeguard training and qualification paid for by Shoals in return for providing lifeguard cover at our sessions. We are always on the lookout for more members who would like to qualify
SNORKELLING - NEW FOR 2016
Snorkelling can add an extra dimension to your sun-and-sea holiday, allowing you to see what's under the waves. If you've ever enjoyed looking at critters in rock pools, it's like that, but better. In the swimming pool you'll enjoy the streamlined efficiency of swimming with fins, gliding along the bottom of the pool without the water turbulence you get at the surface. Our volunteers both have previous experience as scuba and snorkel instructors and have a range of different fins, masks and snorkels which you can borrow.
2019 marks a double anniversary year for our communities. June 28th will mark 50 years since of a pivotal moment in the international civil rights movement, The Stonewall Riots: an uprising in New York City that would be the catalyst for the formation of gay rights groups in the USA and the marches and solidarity rallies which formed the first Prides. Here in Birmingham the Nightingale Club will also celebrate its 50th anniversary as Birmingham’s first Gay Bar. You can find out more here
