Program Overview

This American Red Cross Program is available to youth ages 11 - 15 years old who have the desire to learn about the responsibilities and duties of a lifeguard. This class is designed to teach students basic rescue skills, first aid, CPR, and water safety.

This program does require a time commitment throughout the summer which generally consists of one meeting a week (typically Thursday afternoons) as well as assisting with two swim lesson sessions per week (usually totaling approximately 5 hours). Junior Lifeguards are an important part of our Learn to Swim program which is why it is imperative that they are a committed part of our Aquatics Team.


At time of registration, all participants will be given a class schedule and volunteer availability form. Junior Lifeguards will be scheduled weekly to volunteer at any of our 3 locations based upon their availability.
