Junior Lifeguard Program

The Junior Lifeguard Program was started in 1990 as a springboard for education in water safety, lifesaving techniques and beach ecology.

Junior Lifeguards get plenty of fresh air and sunshine along with exercise and professional surf training. For students interested in learning competition skills, a mini team will be created in each session.

Junior Lifeguards participate in daily team relays involving surfboard paddling, swimming, running and beach flags. Additionally, professional training in CPR and first aid will be provided.

Tryouts and camps are held each summer. To participate, youths must be between 9 and 15 and meet the swim requirements at a tryout. Selected youths then can attend the junior lifeguard camps held weekly beginning in June.

So, unless you’re looking forward to another hot, dry summer, register for a summer of fun! For more information, contact us at jrlifeguard@volusia.org or 386-547-0246.
