Junior Lifeguard

Junior Lifeguarding is a great opportunity for youth ages 8-15 to learn to develop water safety skills while training alongside our certified lifeguards.  This group will meet every Thursday during the summer and bi-monthly during the school year. 

Meetings will consist of hands-on learning combined with fun water and land based games plus water safety activities. Students will learn first aid and CPR basics from certified lifeguard instructors.

This is not a Lifeguard Certification class, however, certification as an Aquatic Safety Assistant will be available for those who meet all requirements through the Junior Lifeguard program at the age of 14.

Registration opens May 1, 2018 or until this program is filled.

WHEN: Thursdays, July 12 to August 30, 2018

TIME:  10:00am-12:00pm

COST: YMCA Member: $80
           Community Member: $120

What should I bring to Training?
