Airfield Swim Academy is proud to offer the RLSS UK’s Rookie Lifeguard programme which aims to provide your child (aged 8-12) with the skills they need to be confident in the pool or the sea, giving you peace of mind.
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. 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 enhance the skills they learn in the pool.
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. Rookies achieve Bronze, Silver and Gold awards as they progress through the scheme, starting off at an ability level suitable for brand-new swimmers and progressing to the level where our Rookie Lifeguards perform impressive lifesaving tows.
The Rookie Lifeguard programme fulfils all of the Key Stage 2 water safety elements of the National Curriculum and is taught by our RLSS UK approved instructors.
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.
