About Us | Lifesaving

What is like to be a lifeguard 

Linden Lifesaving club provides the following services:

We provide Stillwater and Open Water Lifeguard training for Nippers (8 to 13yrs), Junior Lifeguard Award, Lifeguard Award, IRB Skipper and Crewman Awards. Some members work towards obtaining Instructor and Examiner qualifications. We accommodate those people wishing to use the Lifeguard Award to seek employment by including them as private candidates at a premium cost in courses run by the club.

We patrol at water-related events e.g. rowing regattas, triathlons, galas, water polo events, open water swimming events, adventure races, mountain bike races…in fact, anything that involves water! Please contact us on info@lindenlifesaving.co.za for quotes on your event.

 

Our coaches prepare our competitive members for competing in local, national and international events. The club sends a team to the annual National Championships held at the end of the competitive season. Nationals Championships are held in various cities around the country and World Champs are held in various locations internationally.

What kind of services does Linden provide as a Lifesaving Club?

Donations or Pledges – what is typically needed?

Resources such as boats, rescue boards, medical supplies, rescue torpedo buoys and training equipment are under constant strain due to use at patrols and training throughout the year. Our lifeguards often have to spend a great deal of time trying to maintain old equipment to keep it going.

 

On patrol necessities such as gazebos, transport to patrols and food and water use up club funds.

Even though they lack the resources, Linden’s Lifesavers do not let this get in the way of ensuring people’s safety. We need your help, to save the lives of others. Please pledge or donate funds or items, so that we can continue to provide Lifesaving services.

A community that cares

All our Lifesavers are community orientated and spend a great deal of their leisure time teaching younger children the joys of being a lifeguard. They all go the extra mile for each other and for the public. The Lifesaving community cares for each other, have fun together and train each other.

For Linden Lifesaving Club, it is a way of life.
