Keeping it in the family

28 December 2017

Here at Royal Life Saving WA we love to see people taking part in swimming and water safety activities throughout all stages of their life. That’s why we’re really excited about one of the new members of our State Development Team for the upcoming Australian Pool Lifesaving Championships in South Australia.

Lily Moore has been part of the furniture at Royal Life Saving WA since she was just a baby… literally! Lily’s mum Kylie was an employee of Royal Life Saving WA before Lily was born, managing our Swim and Survive department and later working as Inclusion Manager. She was instrumental in the development of the Swim and Survive program in WA, working to ensure all west Australians learnt swimming and water safety skills, and those at-risk – CaLD and Aboriginal groups - weren’t missing out.

Kylie was also involved in the development of the Infant Aquatics program and volunteered Lily to have her photo taken as part of a marketing campaign. As a result a photo of Lily enjoying the water in her infant days, has been part of a large banner on the side of our head office in Mount Claremont for many years!

Now 14 years old, and having been involved in swimming all her life, Lily recently earned a place in our State Pool Lifesaving Development team, and has also completed a training course to become a Pool Lifesaving Instructor. It’s a very proud achievement for Lily and her family, with her dad Adam also in the State Pool Lifesaving Open team!

We wish Lily and Adam all the best for the coming Australian Pool Lifesaving Championships, and look forward to having her as part of the Royal Life Saving family for many years to come!
