Junior Lifeguard Club

What is the Junior Lifeguard Club?
The Junior Lifeguard Club offers an action-packed aquatic challenge for those who love the water, quick learners, those caught between levels or programs, and thrive in an energetic learning environment.  The Junior Lifeguard Club also keeps your swimmers engaged in aquatic learning helping to develop potential future lifeguards. The club stresses fun and skill development based on personal best achievement.

Within a Junior Lifeguard Club kids are able to learn new skills, make new friends, volunteer and help out within the community. Every time the children completes an award level or a personal goal, such as swimming skills, lifesaving skills, fitness, community education, lifesaving knowledge, or leadership, teamwork, and competition they receive a Recognition Seal to place in their Waterlog. Junior Lifeguard Clubs provide children some of the necessary training required to become lifeguards in the future!
Who can participate in Junior Lifeguard Club?

Friends and family members can join together – even if they are different ages and abilities. The club welcomes members between 8 and 15 years of age who can swim at least 25 meters and can tread water for at least 2 minutes.  No formal swimming lessons? No problem, it is another goal for them towards.
