At North Haven SLSC lifesaving is taken very seriously. Members are given many opportunities to further their skills or pass on their lifesaving knowledge to others.
To begin with, new members are guided into a bronze medallion group. This provides a great opportunity to learn new skills while meeting other new members. The bronze medallion is the initial qualification that a person can gain. It is also a pre-requisite for patrolling. The bronze medallion consists of lifesaving theory, practical lifesaving techniques, and physical aspects. This award needs to be renewed each year.
After the bronze medallion is attained, there are many further awards that can be achieved. The achievement of more awards is highly encouraged by the club.
