In January we are delighted to be launching our Junior Lifeguard Academy programme and we want to tell you a bit more about it beforehand.
It is designed for children from 8 years and up who can swim at least 50m unaided (for the aquatic sections!). We will be teaching them key lifeguarding and first aid skills as well as general sports skills, snorkelling, ocean awareness and much more. All of this will aid in your child’s health and wellbeing as well as equipping them with important life skills – Can there ever be too many people trained in lifeguarding and first aid?
The best thing about this programme is that, whilst the skills learnt are clearly the focus, it is structured to be fun first and foremost. Children engage with learning more, and retain the lessons, if they are having fun at the same time! This programme is flexible to allow children to learn at their own pace and the knowledge they gain is reinforced through games and fun tasks.
And of course, through all of this your child will naturally become a better, more confident swimmer.
