Junior Lifeguard Academy



Young swimmers at Just Add Water Swim School near Blandford have been among the first in the country to benefit from STA’s new Junior Lifeguard Academy programme which launched in January 2016

STA’s Junior Lifeguard Academy is a brand new survival and rescue training programme that has been specifically created for young people aged from 8 years plus, and features more than 40 different aquatic and fitness activities for learners to choose from.

Zoe Cooper, Sales & Marketing Director at STA, the world’s largest swimming teaching and lifesaving association, said: “This new fun-packed programme is a great extension to Just Add Water Swim School’s learn to swim programme.  It offers a variety of activities to maintain older learners’ interest in aquatics; from lifeguarding skills and first aid, to snorkelling, synchro, ocean awareness, distance, sports skills and health and wellbeing – plus lots more.”

Just Add Water Swim School who operates from pools at Milton Abbas and Woolland are one of the first to add the Junior Lifeguard Academy to its pool programme offering sessions such as snorkelling, boogie board and Junior Medic at their Milton Abbas site.

Maria of Just Add Water Swim School is very excited about this new programme! “The introduction of the Junior Lifeguard Academy is another great addition to our swim programme.  It will enable older learners to develop new skills beyond the traditional learn to swim programme, and experience a mix of different aquatic, lifesaving, sports and first aid activities.

Along with the Junior Medic programme, we are able to reach out to the local community and schools to give young people the opportunity to learn basic first aid skills in North Dorset.”
