Junior Lifeguards

Summer 2021 Pool Junior Guards

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Santa Cruz County Parks Junior Guards program will provide your child with an understanding of the skills required to become aquatically proficient emphasizing fun and physical fitness through a variety of activities. Under the supervision of our qualified and experienced instructors, your child will practice the skills necessary to become a successful lifeguard.  All the sessions will consist of conditioning, lifeguard instruction and special activity days. Conditioning will include swimming, running, calisthenics and team-building games, in addition to other physical activities. Daily activities will closely follow typical Junior Guard programming.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic many changes will be made to our normal programming. We will follow the social distancing, sanitation, and hygiene practices recommended by the CDC, State, and local health orders. Our practices and guidelines are subject to change as additional health orders and/guidelines are released.
