Northwich Lifesaving Club

About Northwich Lifesaving Club  LSC Logo           

We are part of Northwich Centurions Swimming Club and are represented on the main committee.

We are also a part of the Liverpool & district Branch of the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS)


We offer the Rookie Lifeguard programmes, Life Support, Life Suport3 and the Survive and Save awards.

Rookie Lifeguard is primarily aimed at children aged 8 - 12 years. To join us you must be able to swim 50m on your front and 50m on your back. 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 progresses to the level of performing Lifesaving tows.

Rookie Lifeguard is part of the National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS) developed by the Amateur Swimming Association.

Life Support teaches care of conscious casualties (first aid) and care of unconscious casualties (CPR & recovery position)

Life Support 3 aims to establish excellent levels of knowledge and skills to administer Life support to casualties of all ages and in a variety of situations. Includes the diagnosis and treatment of choking, bleeding, shock, drowning and hypothermia as well as cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This is the highest level of life support accreditation.


The new “Survive & Save” programme is available for swimmers aged 12 and over.

The awards are available at bronze, silver and gold level. You will complete a core programme at each level and then you can choose to take one or more awards (medallion, Stillwater, sport, beach) as an extension to the core work.

The awards cover Self Rescue & Survival, Rescue of others (including tows) and Lifesaving sport (timed swims)

We also enter the RLSS National Lifesaving Championships.
