Junior Lifeguard Clinic 2022

Description: This 4-day course is intended for aspiring lifeguards ages 11-16. Junior lifeguards will learn about ocean water safety as well as rescue techniques in a fun environment. Our own certified guards will provide hands-on instructional and water activities consistent with New York State Ocean lifeguard requirements. Some of the topics and activities covered will include ocean awareness, age appropriate water rescue techniques, team building, and friendly competitions. Junior guards will also have the opportunity to be part of an intra-squad Village Junior Lifeguard tournament. This course is not designed to teach swimming, as such, participants must be confident ocean swimmers and demonstrate a positive attitude. All participants will be given an initial evaluation held on the 1st day.
