Swan Active Beechboro hosts Junior Lifeguard Club Carnival for our future lifesavers

26 October 2018

Swan Active Beechboro hosted a Junior Lifeguard Club Carnival earlier this month, with all three Swan Active Junior Lifeguard Clubs attending from Ballajura, Beechboro and Midland, along with the Wanneroo Aquamotion JLC.

The carnival provided an exciting opportunity for each Junior Lifeguard Club to showcase their skills and compete against other students in their area. There were a total of 25 future lifeguards participating on the day, taking part in events such as the obstacle race, mannikin tow, rescue tube tow, line throw relay and freestyle relay.

Junior Lifeguard Club carnivals give students a chance to practice their skills in a competitive environment. They also enable clubs to showcase their activities to other young people, encouraging more students to be a part of the Junior Lifeguard Club.

Wanneroo Aquamotion is currently undergoing some renovations, so this was a chance for their Junior Lifeguard Club participants to get back in the water and practise their skills, and it seems they haven’t lost their touch with all their participants placing in their events.

The champions of the day were:

  • 8, 9 & 10 year olds - 1st Tayla Barker, 2nd Zen Sailsbury, 3rd Mackenzie Hawkins
  • 11 and 12 year olds - 1st Mitchell Perry, 2nd Luke Riedel, 3rd Gabriel Leo
  • 13 and 14 year olds - 1st Abi Davies, 2nd Alistair Ferguson, 3rd Maxim Soirs 
  • 15 and 16 year olds - 1st Orlando De Santis, 2nd Bailey Arends, 3rd Kyle Maher

The overall champion team of the day, taking home the Swan Active perpetual trophy, were Swan Active Midland. We’d like to congratulate all participants on their fantastic efforts and we look forward to seeing them at our Junior Lifeguard Club State Titles in 2019!

Royal Life Saving WA is keen to see as many young people as possible take part in Junior Lifeguard Clubs across the state, as the skills learnt can lead to a range of different opportunities including participation in the sport of Pool Lifesaving, or even employment in the aquatic industry as its a great pathway towards attaining a Pool Lifeguard qualification.
