RLSS Poole Lifeguard - Group

Become a lifeguard, learn new skills, get fit, support a charity through volunteering or simply meet new people

We’re looking for new members of all ages and abilities (min age 9) THURSDAYS – from 7.30 pm Dolphin Swimming Pool

We provide a wide range of training covering RLSS UK Nationally recognised vocational lifeguard, lifesaving & life support qualifications.

ALL courses are at cost price; most importantly we hope that you will become involved with the Club and take part in patrols.

We also host the Annual Brownsea Island Swim: (4.6 mile sea swim), which we have organised since 1991. This has now become one of the best and most popular ‘Open Water’ swimming challenges in the country according to those who take part each year.

The Club is affiliated to the Royal Life Saving Society UK; which is the UK's premier Education and Training Skills organisation for Water Safety, Aquatic Supervision and Drowning Prevention. RLSS UK is the Governing Body for Lifesaving Sport and Lead Industry Body for training Lifeguards, setting standards and providing guidance and advice on aquatic safety.

We are in partnership with the RNLI Beach Lifeguard program where we work closely with the RNLI Lifeguards and promote the volunteer aspect in both parties as well as encouraging our younger members to become Beach Lifeguards for the future.

We also enjoy the above facilities and links through our affiliation with the Surf Life Saving Association of Great Britain.
