Junior Lifeguarding offers an exciting transition from an advanced Learn-to-Swim course to the StarGuard Lifeguarding program, and challenges participants to stay involved with aquatics. The program includes water safety and first-aid training, daily workouts, lifeguard competitions, and more. Physical fitness and skill development are balanced with self-esteem and camaraderie. Strong swim skills are a must. This course will not certify you as a Lifeguard. Participants are required to pass a non-competitive swim test and the following skills must be demonstrated:
- Swim the front crawl for 25 yards continuously while breathing to the front or side.
- Tread water for one minute.
- Float on the back for 30 seconds.
- Submerge and swim a distance of 10 feet underwater.
