Our Junior Lifeguard Programme

Ireland has one on the Europe’s highest standards for Beach and Pool Lifesaving, still there is always room for improvement as 48% of drownings in the last 20 years are accidental.

The Junior Lifeguard programme at The Dartry Health Club will teach your child from an early age the basics of lifesaving and CPR which could one day help to save a life.

Our Junior Lifeguard programme is delivered in conjunction with Irish Water Safety. The course will help children to have a far better understanding of the dangers of water and will also teach them basic rescues, if needed, with adult supervision.

Over the course of the programme we will give the kids the skills they need to be confident in the pool or sea. The programme covers 5 levels and each child will get their own personal 44 page Lifeguard manual to track their progress.
