Annual Awards Evening
Every year YLSC holds an Awards Evening where all members are invited with parents, and other family members to be presented with their certificates, badges, and medallions. Many of our members will be presented with multiple awards, including Bronze, Silver and Gold Rookie Lifeguard awards, Bronze, Silver and Gold Survive & Save awards based in the pool, sport, still-water and beach, also Life Support awards. We have found this a very popular event with parents to get a better understanding of what their children are doing each Thursday evening and is a very good chance to see how well YLSC is run and how many lifesaving awards are gained by the members of the club.
We also present the Cheetham Trophy, which was donated by our founder. This is presented to an under 25 member who has promoted lifesaving outside of the club, but has also put time and effort in to YLSC.
