Help the kids discover new activities and make new friends with our Better Holiday Clubs and Courses.

This Summer Holidays we will be running the usual 'Learn to Swim' extra swimming lessons, as well as a 'Rookie Lifeguard' course for children aged 8-15 and an 'NPLQ' course for budding new Lifeguards!

The Rookie Lifeguard Programme is a fun and exciting lifesaving awards scheme for children aged 8+. The course aims to give your child a basic understanding of life-saving techniques and a variety of survival and sport skills to use in a real-life rescue situation.
