Are your kids stuck at home glued to a games console?
Get them out learning fun and exciting self-rescue, survival, rescue, and sport skills…
Today’s deal is Eight Week Block of Rookie Lifeguard Lessons @ Waterside Pool, Ryde, for only £42.00
Waterside Pool believes that water safety is of the highest importance and therefore offers a range of drowning prevention initiatives locally, as well as proving professional lifesaving training.
Part of this is their Rookie Lifeguard 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 enhance the skills they learn in the pool.
For many Rookie Lifeguards, this programme offers the first opportunity to explore water safety, gradually gaining independence and confidence while learning vital life skills. The 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.
Rookie Lifeguard is aimed at children – 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 Rookie Lifeguards perform impressive lifesaving tows.
Rookie Lifeguard is part of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme, although it can also be run as a stand-alone course by junior lifesaving clubs, leisure centres, swimming schools and as part of school swimming lessons.
The Rookie Lifeguard programme fulfils all of the Key Stage 2 water safety elements of the National Curriculum and is taught by 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.
