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 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 all 3 of our locations based upon their availability.

Participants will have an end-of-summer party where they will receive an official t-shirt and a "Certificate of Dedicated Service" at completion of the course.

Registration - May 21 at 1:30 p.m. at CRC Pool

Registration will take place on the day of the swim test. You will need to fill out the registration form (PDF) and bring a check for the applicable amount.

The program is limited to the first 35 participants who successfully pass the swim test and meet all the requirements.
