  • Prevention of aquatic accidents
  • Fitness and swimming skills
  • Response in an emergency
  • Leadership skills
  • Professionalism of a lifeguard

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.
