STA’s Junior Lifeguard Academy is a survival and rescue training programme that has been specifically created for young people aged from 8 years (for the aquatic programmes, learners must be able to swim 50 metres continuously unaided).
The fun-packed programme offers something for everyone; from lifeguarding skills and first aid, to boogie boarding, ocean awareness, distance, sports skills and health and wellbeing.
- Learners work at their own pace; there is no set timetable or deadline to complete the programme – instructors have the flexibility to schedule them in to lessons in any order
- Knowledge is reinforced through fun games
- All the missions and challenges are progressive – learners earn colourful, age-appropriate certificates as they complete set parts of the programme
- Many of the skills do not have to be completed in a swimming pool and can be done at home, club, school or even online.
