This course is offered by Gilbert Parks and Recreation in conjunction with the American Red Cross. It is designed for participants ages 12-16 who would like to work as a Lifeguard, but are too young to take the required courses or become certified. This is an introductory program which prepares students for real Lifeguard duties-pool supervision, CPR, first aid, facility maintenance, and assisting with pool programs such as swim lessons, swim meets, and other fun activities. Through this program we hope to encourage participants to continue with their education and training in the future to become a certified lifeguard. Junior Lifeguard training will include rule enforcement, CPR and First Aid demonstrations, and various rescue scenarios.
Requirements & Registration
All participants must commit to volunteering at least 30 hours (shifts are available at all four pool locations).
