Our Nippers and Youth benefit from a wide range of activities including RNLI and SAS Education, First Aid courses, surfing lessons with One to One and fitness and strength training all with highly qualified coaches.
Our aim is to provide the lifeguards of tomorrow with training to help keep themselves and others safe whilst enjoying our wonderful beaches – and know what to do if an emergency arose!
Our summer training is beach based and runs from May – September and is carried out on Watergate Bay Beach, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Our Winter training is pool based and runs from October – April at Newquay View Holiday Park, Sundays and Mondays.
Children are required to swim a minimum of 50m to join us.
During training children will learn how to keep themselves and others safe on the beach and in the sea.
The older Nippers can perform rescues and first aid and all Nippers are working towards their Life Saving Pathways leading up to their Graduate Lifeguard.
