The local Lifesaving Club runs though out the winter months offering a wide range of Lifesaving awards

Focusing on teaching water safety & Drowning Prevention through education, the Club lifesaving classes consist of – Rookies Lifeguards, Survive and Safe and CPR Life-Support classes.

There is no time frame to complete the levels you work at your own pace and when you are ready to be assessed for the level you are at it would be arranged by the club.
