The Richmond Hill Lifesaving Club (RHLC) will introduce young athletes to the sport of lifesaving, while encouraging healthy living and regular physical fitness. Throughout the year, specially trained Lifesaving Coaches will concentrate on developing each swimmer's strength, power and endurance. Athletes will focus on teamwork, sportsmanship, achieving personal bests and most of all having fun!
The Lifesaving Society is the Canadian governing body for lifesaving sport - a sport recognized by the International Olympic Committee and the Commonwealth Games Federation. The Lifesaving Society promotes competition as a training incentive and a showcase for the abilities and professionalism of lifesavers and lifeguards. Lifesaving is unique among sports in that we first learn the skills for humanitarian reasons and only later apply them in competition.
The Junior Division of the Richmond Hill Lifesaving Club will train young athletes between the ages of 7 and 10 years of age who have completed Swimmer 3. Athletes will attend a 45 minute practice.
The Youth Division of the Richmond Hill Lifesaving Club will train young athletes between the ages of 10 and 15 years who have completed Swimmer 4. This is an excellent program that will assist Swim Patrol and Bronze Medal candidates in maintaining their aquatic fitness and skills, while training to become future lifeguards and instructors.
