rookie lifeguard awards

The Rookie Lifeguard programme is the junior award scheme of the RLSS UK. For most children, Rookie Lifeguard will be the first opportunity to explore water safety and alternative safe aquatic play.

what is it?

The Rookie skills make Rookies aware of how to take better care of themselves, their family and friends and give them the information they need to promote water safety in their day to day activities. The awards contain survival, rescue and sports skills as well as life support and water safety elements.

Rookie Lifeguard is primarily aimed at children aged 8-12 years, although most of the skills can be taught to people of all ages. Starting with Stage 1 of the Bronze Award and progressing through to Stage 3 of the Gold Award, Rookie Lifeguard begins at an ability level suitable for swimmers who have just learned to swim and wish to progresses to the next level of performing lifesaving tows.

My family experienced the Hyper Bowling last week. My children absolutely loved it and wouldn’t stop talking about it, it was such great fun & good how any age can win. I was impressed by the price and how clean everywhere was…

The staff! I’d still use Active Hyde’s gym if the facilities were rubbish and the price was high. There is always a cheerful person on hand to provide help and advice, both on site and on the phone.

10/10 great facilities and location. Excellent instructors and friendly staff.

Janet

The gym and reception staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, always happy to assist… I would highly recommend the gym to anyone who is looking for a friendly, professionally run gym with a great atmosphere that caters to all ages and abilities.

I am grateful to the staff at Tameside Wellness Centre for understanding my difficulties, especially since they are invisible. But believing and supporting and being kind to me has made me more determined to continue with my passion for life and remaining active as best as I can…
