About the program

We run the Rookie Lifeguard Classes at our Lee Chapel Pool Location.  Built into the program 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 program offers the first opportunity to explore water safety, gradually gaining independence and confidence while learning vital life skills.

Rookie Lifeguard

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.

Rookie Lifeguard is part of the Swim England Learn to Swim Program.  Even the shyest children find they make new friends through the Rookie Lifeguard scheme, as teamwork and peer support are crucial elements of the program.

The Rookie Lifeguard Awards are for your children if they are budding lifeguards.

Developed by the Royal Life Saving Society in partnership with Swim England, the Rookie Lifeguard Awards offer parents the comfort of knowing their children are aware of how to avoid dangers and enjoy the water safely.

The Bronze, Silver and Gold stage awards ensure children have a solid safety education, and have learned rescue and resuscitation techniques.

Each stage of the Rookie Lifeguard Awards is sub-divided into three levels and each stage runs roughly for eight to 10 weeks.

Your children can enter a course at any point during the stage and progress at his or her own speed.
