Rookie Lifeguard

Become a Rookie Lifeguard at St Margaret’s Sports Centre!

Here at St Margaret’s Sports Centre we offer the opportunity for children aged 8+ to achieve their Rookie Lifeguard Badges. This programme teaches children important water safety skills, personal survival and rescue techniques through fun, engaging activities.

The first award to achieve is Bronze 1 followed by Bronze 2 and Bronze 3, working up to Gold 3. For each stage completed, children will receive a badge and certificate.

Children must be able to swim 25 metre lengths competently without goggles in order to take part in Rookie Lifeguard sessions.
