Let the fun begin "Junior Lifeguard 2016"

posted 18 Jul 2016, 14:21 by Ross Halfpenny

Well  summer seems to be here at last and just in time for our first Junior Lifeguard session of the 2016 season.

We believe that our Junior Lifeguard program gives children the tools and knowledge to be safer by the sea, and therefore for parents to feel at ease to allow them to have fun in the water.

During the Junior Lifeguard session children will learn to bodysurf, dolphin dive, paddle a rescue board, identify waves, rip currents and other dangers as well as fun beach activities including ‘beach flags’, a fast and energetic sport event.

The sessions will cater for the ability of the group; the only pre-requisite is that the child must be between the age of 7-14 years and able to swim 50m unaided.  All our coaches are experienced in working with children and have full DBS checks and safeguarding training.

All participants will receive a SLSGB Junior Lifeguard certificate – an SLSGB entry-level award and a T-shirt
