POOL LIFESAVING FOR KIDS
Junior Swimming and Lifesaving
Beginner to Advanced
Modified events, activities and games that are fun and inclusive, promoting teamwork, physical activity and ongoing learning and practice of swimming and lifesaving skills.
The perfect environment for kids to have fun, make new friends and create memories that last a lifetime
Games and activities with friends
We all want kids to enjoy their early experience in the water as this will help promote life-long participation. This means having fun in a relaxed environment with their friends.
Junior Swimming and Lifesaving is short and is about participation not competition, giving participants and their families the opportunities to learn, have fund and build friendships.

What to expect
What to expect
We don't want to put kids in adult environments too early and that includes deep water, congested pools, unnecessary physicality and an over-emphasis on winning when fun and skill development is more important.
It is important that our Junior Lifesavers are familiar with, and adopt, the "everyone can be a lifesaver" philosophy. It is this philosophy that ensures participating boys and girls have a fun, safe and positive experience that is suitable to their needs.
Within this stage a coach will have a basic understanding of Pool Lifesaving as a Sport and the key rules and parameters associated with theirs and an athlete’s participation in Pool Lifesaving.
