Become a Junior Lifesavers Partner
More than just participation – Junior Lifesavers combines the skills of swimming, rescue, accident prevention and emergency care into a series of events that are designed to test the overall ability of a young lifesaver, both in and out of the water.For schools and aquatic facilities, it is one of the best tools you can have to keep children in the water for longer.
What are the benefits?
Junior Lifesavers can be adapted to supplement or add variety to swimming and water safety programs for all ages and abilities, for lifeguard training and development, or as a fun, challenging and interactive alternative to squads and competitive swimming.
For those undertaking swimming and lifesaving awards, Junior Lifesaving is a great way to have fun, be social and build on existing skills and knowledge while keeping fit. Additionally, research shows that regular training using simulated rescues increases the success of responses to real-life rescue scenarios.
Junior Lifesaver also offers the following potential benefits for aquatic facilities, swim schools, schools and clubs:
A non-competitive offering for swimmers who don’t want to pursue squads, or for those exiting the water safety pathway
Building relationships and lifesaving, leadership and initiative skills for future lifeguards and aquatic staff
Attract new and diverse members to the existing aquatic communityLow cost, flexible delivery
Pathways for participants, parents, staff and volunteers in coaching, officiating, team management and competition
Support from RLS including promotional tools, program support, equipment and training
A purposeful and beneficial vehicle for community engagement, with programs that can be built to accommodate multicultural, non-English speaking, indigenous and disadvantaged participants.
