Rookie Lifeguard

Share this page

If your children are budding lifeguards, then the Rookie Lifeguard Award developed by the Royal Lifesaving Society UK  in conjunction with the ASA and the LTS, should be just what you are looking for.

As well as offering parents the comfort of knowing their children are aware the dangers of swimming in open water, the Bronze, Silver and Gold stage awards ensure children have a solid safety education, and have learned rescue and resuscitation techniques.

Each stage is sub-divided into three levels and each stage runs roughly for 8-10 weeks. Your children can enter a course at any point during the stage and progress at his or her own speed.

The Rookie Lifeguard Programme also comes with the Water Safety Award, the Life Support Award and the Achievement Awards. There are also other bolt-on awards that can be achieved, such as Snorkelling, Paddle Board and Beach Awards.
