New to Chelsea Sports Centre is the Rookie Lifeguard programme - the official junior award scheme of the Royal Life Saving Society UK. Rookie Lifeguard Sessions supports producing and developing a new generation of children who can not only swim competently but also have a strong awareness of water safety and rescue principles.

These lessons are for those who have completed Stage 7 and have an interest in lifesaving in a fun and relaxed environment. Skills learnt during the Rookie Lifeguard programme include: •Rescuing casualties with a variety of equipment and techniques •Recognising a casualty •CPR •Recovery Position •Lifesaving Strokes •Lifesaving Scenarios

Each session is 45 minutes long and swimmers are given the opportunity to progress at their own speed, allowing children to spend as much time as they need to become confident with the new skills on offer.

Lessons are now available on a Friday evening from 6.15–7pm at Chelsea Sports Centre and are available to book online today!
