Rookie Lifeguard Programme

The Rookie Lifeguard Programme is the junior award scheme of the Royal Lifesaving Society UK (RLSS UK).  For most children Rookie Lifeguards will be their first opportunity to explore water safety and alternative safe aquatic play.  The Rookie skills will prepare Rookies to take better care of themselves, their family and friends, and give them the information they need to promote water safety in their day-to-day activities. 

The Rookie awards contain survival, rescue and sport skills as well as life support and water safety elements. The Rookie Lifeguard Programme fulfils all of the Key Stage 2 water safety elements of the National Curriculum.

Age restrictions apply: 8 to 13 years of age only.
