Due to popular demand, Cork Surf Life Saving and Cork Water Safety are happy to announce that Life Saving Sport will start in Mallow Pool for Nippers (born 2010-2004) on Sunday, November 19 at 5.45pm. To join your child must be able to swim 50m (2 lengths of pool) unaided.

Life Saving Sport is growing in Cork County and runs throughout the year. During the summer, you will see Nippers training on Cork beaches like Inchydoney, The Warren and Youghal and during the winter the sport moves indoors to our pools.

In 2018, these new Nippers will have the opportunity to represent their county and compete in regional and All-Ireland competitions. Annual competition gives children an opportunity to compete in conditions that Life Savers can encounter in real life rescue situations.

The sport of life saving teaches participants the skills necessary to rescue people in distress in the water. The events are varied and challenging testing a variety of life saving skills in the process.

The sport of life saving is unique as it injects a lifesaving skill back into a community and the training is all volunteer based making it a special activity that people want to be involved in and get so much enjoyment from.

If you would like to book a place for your child please text Margaret Horgan on 087-9481255.
