ROOKIE LIFEGUARD:

 

THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO COURSES SCHEDULED AT THE CENTRE.  CALL US ON 0287034 7202 TO ADD YOUR NAME TO OUR WAITING LIST FOR THE NEXT COURSE.

 

The Rookie Lifeguard programme is the Junior Award Scheme of the Royal Lifesaving Society (RLSS).  The programme is great fun and has been designed specifically for 8-12 year olds.

As a Rookie you will learn special lifesaving skills to help you save yourself and know what to do if others get into difficulty in the water.  You will also learn what to do if someone stops breathing.

The award contains survival, rescue and sports skills as well as life support and water safety elements, so they are great fun to do.

The Rookie Programme is divided into 3 stages - Bronze, Silver and Gold.  At each stage there are 3 badges and also lots of special badges you can work towards.
