The American Red Cross has officially adopted the Guard Start Program! We will offer four sessions of Guard Start this summer. The Guard Start program is a junior lifeguard program for children between the ages of 13-15 who want to enhance their aquatic skills & build a foundation for future courses in lifeguarding. This two week course will focus on Prevention, Fitness, Response, Leadership & Professionalism. Students will also be instructed in basic CPR/First Aid. Participants will be paired with a certified lifeguard to observe & practice the skills they have learned.
