Campaigns #BeaRookieLifeguard About #BeaRookieLifeguard About the Be a Rookie Lifeguard campaign: Summer 2018 RLSS UK’s Be a Rookie Lifeguard campaign aims to attract more children into swimming pools and give them vital lifesaving skills in a fun and exciting way! This year, we are delighted to welcome support from our newly-appointed Ambassador Trent ‘Maxi’ Maxwell, from the Australian hit TV show Bondi Rescue. Running from 5-12 March and 6-13 August, the Be a Rookie Lifeguard campaign will encourage children to find out more and take part in RLSS UK’s Rookie Lifeguard programme. About the Rookie Lifeguard programme The Rookie Lifeguard programme teaches children how to swim and enjoy water safely, whether in shallow or deeper water. It is a comprehensive and exciting scheme, equipping children with lifesaving skills and builds confidence in and around bodies of water. Still not sure?
