Jr. Lifeguarding

Ages: 11 - 14

Pre-requisites: Students must be able to tread water for 1 minute, swim 25 yards of front crawl while breathing to the front or side, swim 25 yards of breaststroke using a pull, kick and glide sequence, be comfortable floating on the back for 30 seconds and swim 25 yards on the back using backstroke or backcrawl and submerge and swim 10 feet under water.

This course is meant to provide a foundation of aquatic knowledge and leadership skills and attitudes for future successful completion of the Red Cross Lifeguarding course. This is not a certification course. Students receive a certificate of completion.  Lessons and activities are derived from the American Red Cross Guardstart: Lifeguarding Tomorrow Program. The program will be taught by our Waterfront Directors and qualified instructors.

The course meets primarily at Jennings Beach, but the program will have a meeting schedule TBD so students can experience swimming at several Town beaches. Parents must provide transportation to different meeting locations.
