infinity RLSS Rookie Lifeguard
RLSS 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 the water safely, whether in shallow or deeper water.
About the programme
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 motivated. The course can run parallel to your child’s current swimming lessons and will also 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. 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 infinity RLSS Rookie Lifeguards perform impressive lifesaving tows.
Even the shyest kids find they make new friends through the Rookie Lifeguard scheme, as teamwork and peer support are crucial elements of the programme.
infinity RLSS Rookie Lifeguards runs weekly and is offered as a drop-in or block booking. Children are assessed once they have met the 12-week attendance quota.
