LEVEL ONE JUNIOR OWS - £6.50
There are both theory and practical elements to the level one course. Over the ten weeks we adjust the course to the individual young people and continue with a dry side focus if the conditions are ever dangerous.

On the team are qualified lifeguards and swim coaches who are both experienced at working with young people as well as coaching in open water.

The level one course is aimed at the FUNDAMETALS of open water swimming and is mainly game based.

Below is the sylabus we follow for certification:
