Lifesaving and Rookie Lifeguard

 

Lifesaving Clubs

Lifesaving differs from lifeguarding in that it is designed for people who want to be able to respond to a situation that may develop especially in an open water situation. Lifeguarding revolves around controlled swimming environments. If you are interested in lifeguarding awards please see our lifeguard training section of the website.

Lifesaving clubs will often work towards the famous Bronze medallion as well as take part in local and National competitions.

Lifesaving is suitable for good swimmers of all ages and is often a good link for people leaving the swimming lessons scheme who would like to keep swimming and possibly be a lifeguard once they reach 16 years old.

Rookie Lifeguard Clubs

Rookie Lifeguard awards are part of the RLSS (Royal Lifesaving Society) programme of activities and are designed to follow Stage 7 of the ASA NPTS. They are also a good link to lifesaving awards and also the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification.

Rookie Lifeguard may be delivered by swimming clubs or by the leisure centres themselves.

More details on the Rookie Lifeguard programme are available in the Rookie Lifeguard section of the Junior Lessons pages of the website
