RLSS Rookie Lifeguards

Rookie t front

RLSS UK’s Rookie Lifeguard programme gives your child the skills they need to be confident in the pool or the sea – which means peace of mind for you. 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.

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 engage and motivate them. 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 – though the skills learned through the course of the programme are just as valuable to people of all ages. 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.

Aimed at confident swimmers aged 8-12 who are happy in deep water.

We are commencing this summer with the Bronze Stage of which there are 3 awards, Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 for your child or children to do or they can do all 3! Upon completion of each course a badge and certificate is awarded. (Course details further down.)
