Jr. Lifeguard Participants Stand Out from the Competition
Pool managers know that youth who participate in a Jr. Lifeguard program before becoming a lifeguard are more dedicated, efficient and knowledgeable than their competition. Plus, as a Jr. Lifeguard participant, you’ll get to know the staff members at your local aquatics facility, giving you the advantage over the other candidates when the hiring process begins.
