It’s time for our community to knock down the number of drowning deaths that occur in our dams.
This one day session is a community initiative to fight back against the increasing statistic and the horrific number of drowning’s that has occurred over the Christmas break and the summer season.
It is our goal to teach as many families a few survival skills and talk about unknowns of our dams, creeks and rivers that cause these deaths in our favourite swimming holes.
Cost of $15 registration fee includes gift pack and we ask that you purchase a Downs Little Lifeguards rashie ($25) unless you have one from previous participation.
Children 9-17 years (adults are encouraged to participate, must be able to swim 50m continual)
