Junior Lifeguard Program

Junior Lifeguards

Junior Lifeguard Camp is intended to develop future lifeguards. Junior Guards will help support the lifeguard staff, swim instructors and swim coaches. The goal is to introduce the future lifeguards to rescue skills, life support skills and first aid. Participants that complete the course will be eligible to compete in the Junior Lifeguard Games at the end of the season.

Improve life-safety skills, increase confidence and social interaction, promote a healthy lifestyle, accomplish goals and develop the skill necessary to complete a lifeguard training. Junior Guards who are 15 years old will have the opportunity to sit in on lifeguard training Course Exams. If participant completes the Exams, they will receive a lifeguard certification. They will also be able to attend all Westwood Staff in-training and start training for the Junior Lifeguard Games. If the participant turns 16 years old before the summer is over they are eligible to apply for a position at The Westwood Family Aquatics Center.

Parents are expected to attend a brief 10 minute meeting on the first day of camp
