Diving instructors were trained in Aubigny-sur-Ner to supervise people with disabilities

The aim of the sports and water complex in Aubigny-sur-Nère was to push the boundaries on Sunday. Etangs Swimming Pool and the Regional Center for Youth and Sports (CRJS) hosted a course that allows diving instructors to train people with disabilities to practice underwater. The first on the Albanian site, opened specifically for this course.

This regional operation was created by the French Federation of Underwater Studies and Sports (FFESSM) and its label “Handisub”, close to disabled and modified sports, which confirms the level of divers. The morning at the CRJS was devoted to theoretical lessons, before putting it into practice, in the afternoon, in the aquarium, where it was appreciated for its radiance.

Six trainees, supervised by three water instructors, each responsible for a person with mental, psychological and cognitive disabilities. Among them, there was also a person with poor eyesight, who needed to use other means of communication.

All the coaches already, the trainees wanted to do this extra training so they could better supervise a wider audience. “The training allows them to supervise a more diverse audience in so-called protected sites such as beach areas bordered by large yellow buoys or swimming pools no more than two meters deep, explains Agnes Buchsenchutz, regional reference. This is the intermediate level, for the so-called intermediate disabilities, The higher level is for deeper sites.”

It is important to say that they can do all kinds of sports, and they often think that it is forbidden to them.

In all clubs, coaches with these qualifications can accommodate all disabilities, and course organizers are keen to make clear that there are structures for practicing these activities. Because the primary goal is above all to make the practice of underwater sports accessible to all, in a suitable environment. “It is important to say that they can do all kinds of sports, they often think that it is forbidden to them.”

As part of this training, some of these PWDs, all from Indre-et-Loire, were able to dive for the first time, while others enhanced their skills. “These are activities that are often intimidating, but we are a very organized federation, safety protocols, and coaches have complete control over them.”

Weightlessness caused by aquatic practices
It can be used as a treatment

Thus, being physically active, on land or in water, does not interfere with disability, and sometimes even promotes independence: “These are often in an institute or have a teacher. But the weightlessness of water practices can be used as a therapy. It envelops and calms them down. It brings them well-being. A disconnection from their earthly world allowing them to refocus on their bodies, their feelings and even their happiness. We are moving towards the development of prescription sports. The goal is inclusion.”

Practice. More details on the FFESSM website, “Handisub” section.
