About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, September 28, 2021.

Bronze Cross is designed for lifesavers who want the challenge of more advanced training. Bronze Cross teaches the difference between lifesaving and lifeguarding, the principles of emergency procedures, and teamwork. Lifesavers learn the skills involved in the rescue of a victim with a spinal injury, the rescue of an unconscious victim, and the rescue of a submerged victim. Assistant lifeguard situations are introduced.

Endurance swim of 400 meters in 11 minutes is required for successful completion of this level.

Successful participants receive the Bronze Cross and Lifesaving CPR C awards.

100 % attendance and participation is recommended.

Prerequisites: Bronze Medallion (participants must provide Bronze Medallion card to the instructor at the first class)

Next Lifesaving Level: Distinction; or at 15 years of age, Lifesaving - National Lifeguard Service Award (NLS); or at 16 years of age, Lifesaving & First Aid Instructor Course
