Junior Lifeguards

This program will return for the Summer of 2023 and is designed to guide youth ages 13-15 into Lifeguard Training by building a foundation of skills, attitudes and knowledge. Areas of focus are prevention, fitness, response, leadership, and professionalism. Participants get the opportunity to volunteer with our swim lessons and water park/public swim times as well as being a part of the Aquatic team during the summer.

Program Prerequisites:

  • Must be 13 to 15 years old
  • Swim 100 yards freestyle continuously
  • Tread water for 1 minute
  • Retrieve a 10 pound diving brick from the deep end of the pool
The Jr. Lifeguard program will certify the participants as a StarGuard Elite Lifeguard if all minimum qualifications are met. To complete the course, a minimum of 50 volunteer hours is required between June 12 and July 30, and participants must be 15 years old by July 30 in order to be eligible for a Lifeguard certification.
