Lifesaving Training

 
DLGC has a long and proud tradition of the teaching of Lifesaving.
 
We currently run the RLSS Rookie Lifeguard Course 
 
 
 
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 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.
 
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.
 
It is part of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme, although we run it as stand-alone course. The Rookie Lifeguard Water Safety Award 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.
Lifesaving Training
We are also looking for enthusiastic people who would like to help us move this part of our Club forward.  
Lifesaving experience would be an advantage but not essential and we are looking for a group of people who can work together on this.
 
If you would like to find out more about this section of the Club come along to Club Night on Thursdays 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm at Dover Leisure Centre or email our Lifesaving Secretary - Nakai Redman.
 

The Dover Life Guard Club is affiliated to the Royal Lifesaving Society (RLSS).
