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 RLSS Lifesaving Academy 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 RLSS UK National Lifesaving Academy awards are a suite of progressive awards that teach personal survival, first aid, CPR, rescue, and fitness skills to anyone aged 12 years and over. Their aim is to teach candidates how to stay safe around water and how to safely assist others who may have gotten into difficulty in both aquatic and non-aquatic situations.

The awards are structured to teach foundational skills and then progressively build up the candidate’s skills. On achieving the Bronze

Medallion level of award, the candidate receives Recognition of Prior Learning hours towards the RLSS UK vocational lifeguard qualifications.

The awards are structured into three levels (Bronze Lifesaving Certificate, Bronze Star, and Bronze Medallion), and multiple environmental strands are available at the Bronze Star and Bronze Medallion levels.
