Jr Guard Prep and Conditioning class


Jr Lifeguards is a wonderful program for youth to learn about ocean safety and various ocean activities. Most beach cities offer this program all along the coast. While we do not advocate one program over another, we do train the children and prepare them to pass the entry requirements and learn water safety survival skills before they are sent out into the ocean.

We strongly recommend that if your child is going to enroll in one of these programs to sign up for our Jr Guard Prep course so they have the basic understanding and skills necessary to feel safe and water prepared for the rigorous training they will receive at one of the Jr Guard programs.
