The Rookie Lifeguard programme offers young people an opportunity to explore water safety, gradually gaining independence and confidence while learning vital life skills. Our programme will inspire and encourage your child, helping them keep themselves, their friends and their family safe in the water through a range of fun activities that lead to a series of awards.
Rookie Lifeguards is aimed at children who are able to swim 25 metres and tread water competently. The scheme begins with Stage 1 of the Bronze Award and progresses to Stage 3 of the Gold Award, starting off at an ability level suitable for brand new swimmers and progressing to the level where our Rookie Lifeguards perform impressive lifesaving tows.
Bronze Award, Thursdays at 5:30pm
Silver/Gold Awards, Tuesday at 5:30pm during term-time only.
