Junior Lifeguard Club

lifeguards swimming underwater

Jr. Lifeguard Club is for kids ages 8 to 15, who meet the Lifesaving Society’s Swim to Survive standard – which includes being able to roll into deep water, tread water for one minute and swim at least 50 metres. The program will provide an action-packed challenge for kids who love the water and want more than “lessons.”

Building on skills they already have, Jr. Lifeguard Club members work to develop and improve swimming and other aquatic skills with emphasis on swimming skills, lifesaving skills, lifesaving knowledge, leadership and teamwork, community education, competition and personal fitness.

The club is offered as an alternative to traditional test-sheet-based aquatic programs, where kids can earn recognition seals and lifesaving awards.

Jr. Lifeguard Club will run every Wednesday from May 24 to August 30, 2023 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The program costs $150.
