Become a Rookie Lifeguard

During the October School Holidays (week commencing October 22nd) we will be running another programme of Rookie Lifeguard courses at East Manchester Leisure Centre following the success of our previous holidays. 

The Rookie Lifeguard Programme is a fun and exciting lifesaving awards scheme for children aged 8+.
