Headlines as follows

1. £25 pp for the 10 weeks (covers junior sailing club membership)

4. Members will be working towards their NVBLQ Level 2 or 3. I’ll explain more soon!
5. I’m making a membership form and will make it available ASAP. You will need to have completed this before the 12 July so we know how many participants we have!
6. The idea of the club is that it becomes self sufficient once we have qualified members to run training. That means we need some grown up’s to get involved please!
7. Don’t worry if you are not a great swimmer – you will be after 10 weeks!
8. Don’t worry if you can’t make all the sessions

The Beach Lifesaver awards are split into 3 levels – level 1, level 2 and level 3 (more commonly known as the National Vocational Beach Lifeguard Qualification (NVBLQ)).  The level of knowledge, skills and fitness required for each level is progressive, with the NVBLQ being the industry standard and nationally recognised award for beach lifeguards in the UK.  At this stage we will focus on either the level 1 or level 2. The main differences in the practical elements are as follows;

Beach Lifesaver Level 1 Beach Lifesaver Level 2
200m pool swim in 5 minutes 400m pool swim in 9 mins 30 seconds
