Rookies/Life Guarding

Rookie Lifeguard

This is the first step on the ladder to becoming a qualified Lifeguard and forms part of our Junior Learn to Swim program.

The programme gives your child the skills they need to be confident in the pool or the sea. With colourful materials and fun, varied activities, the Rookie Lifeguard scheme teaches children how to swim and enjoy water safely, whether in shallow or deeper water.

The bronze, silver and gold levels are covered under the Junior Leisure for Life card or by taking out the swimming lesson direct debit.
