The Rookie Lifeguard course gives your child the skills they need to be confident in the pool or sea - meaning a peace of mind for you. 

Built into the programme are lessons in valuable survival, rescue and sports skills...all delivered in an exciting way that will get children involved and motivated. The course can run parallel to your child's current swimming lessons and will enhance the skills they learn in the pool.

For many of our Rookie Lifeguards, our programme offers the first opportunity to explore water safety, gradually gaining independence and confidence while learning vital life skills. Our programme will inspire and embolden your child, helping them keep themselves, their friends and their family safe in the water through a range of fun activities that lead towards a series of awards.

Rookie Lifeguard is aimed at children. 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 swimmers and progressing to the level where our Rookie Lifeguards perform impressive lifesaving tows.
