Lifesaving Society 2020 Bronze Revisions Update - 2023 Delivery

In 2020 the Lifesaving Society released the revised Bronze medal awards. The update improves skill progressions for a seamless flow into National Lifeguard and sets candidates up for success as they move through the Society’s lifesaving, assistant lifeguard and lifeguard continuum.


We outline the changes in three communiques:

• What’s new for instructors?

• What’s new for recertifying Bronze Cross candidates?

• What’s new for affiliates?


Highlights include:

• Bronze Star focuses on swimming proficiency, lifesaving skill and physical fitness.

• Bronze Medallion reintroduces lifesaving strokes.

• Bronze Cross introduces fundamental assistant lifeguard skills.

• Standardized Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross recertification exams.


There are no changes to prerequisites.
