Our Jr. Lifesaving Club will introduce participants between the ages of 7-14 years to the sport of lifesaving, while providing them with training opportunities towards more experienced lifesaving competitions. The Club encourages healthy living and regular physical fitness, and incorporates High Five Sport and Fundamental Movement Skills in a social club setting.

Throughout the year, specially trained Lifesaving Coaches will concentrate on developing each swimmer’s strength, power and endurance. Participants will also focus on teamwork, sportsmanship, achieving personal bests and, most of all, having fun! During the competition season, CGC Jr. Lifesaving Club members may have the opportunity to train for and participate in a number of pool events including the Nova Scotia Pool series and the Canadian Lifesaving Championships.

This club is an excellent option for swimmers who have progressed through the swimming lessons but are too young to start leadership levels.

Prerequisite: Completed Swimmer 4 or Swim Kids 5
