View 2018 Class Descriptions and Schedule

The Junior Lifeguard program is designed to prepare potential lifeguards, ages 13-15, for the skills and tasks they would need to perform when they become eligible to be hired (16 years and older). Participants will get hands-on experience and see first hand what lifeguards do on a day-to-day basis. The junior lifeguards will also learn the basics of CPR and first aid, swim lessons, and teaching water safety to families at local home owner association pools. Each junior lifeguard will participate in the lifeguarding staff weekly training on Mondays from 12:00 - 4:00pm. In addition, each junior lifeguard will be required to submit a "schedule request" at least one week prior to the first day so individual schedules can be built to meet the participant's availability. Junior lifeguards will not be scheduled for more than 16 hours per week.

Potential hours are Monday - Friday between 9:00am and 9:30pm and Saturday and Sunday between 1:00pm and 7:00pm.

Session 1: June 11 - June 29

Session 2: July 16 - August 3
