Junior Lifeguards prepare to make a splash

21 May 2018

This Sunday over 80 Junior Lifeguard Club participants from 9 clubs are taking part in the Lifeguard Club State Titles at HBF Stadium in Mount Claremont. This exciting competition enables Junior Lifeguard Club members to showcase the swimming and lifesaving activities they have practiced throughout the year.

The events will include swimming with obstacles, rescue tube tow, manikin carry & rope throw relay, with participants competing across 10 age groups.

The Junior Lifeguard Club program aims to increase children’s participation in swimming and lifesaving activities. It is an aquatic education alternative to traditional swimming lessons for kids who want to combine their passion for swimming with the ability to learn new lifesaving skills. The program is an opportunity for kids to join a club that will advance their aquatic skills, with an emphasis on fun while maintaining strong club feelings and loyalties.

The participating clubs are The Swim School WA, Ballajura Aquatic Centre, Kwinana Recquatic, Cannington Leisureplex, Mandurah Aquatic & Recreation Centre, Fremantle JLC, Wanneroo Aquamotion, Redsharks Swimming & Life Saving Club and the Central Aquatic Swimming & Lifesaving Club.

The Royal Life Saving Junior Lifeguard Club program is proudly supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries. There are 44 clubs across the state and you can find out how to get your child involved by clicking the link below.
