In order to cater for the lifeguards of the future, we have a Rookie Lifeguard section, which blends into the Royal Lifesaving Society UK’s higher awards and lifeguard training scheme.
Anyone from the age of 9 can become a Rookie.
The club provides training in water safety, personal survival and basic rescue skills, as well as specialist skills including, life support, snorkelling, paddle board rescues and communications.
Beach training is provided between May and September at Sandbanks beach to consolidate all the skill learned in the pool. Beach sessions are run on Sunday afternoons 4pm-6pm.
Each person wishing to join the club has to do a short swim test. Details of this can be found at.
For annual membership and monthly swim fees, please visit our Membership Area or contact the membership secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
