Jr. Lifeguard Programs

Ocean safety and awareness is a necessity for the youth of our beach communities.  Our Intro to Junior Lifeguards program is designed to educate and train our participants on the skills necessary to safely and confidently enter our oceans.  Unlike other Junior Lifeguard programs, we pride ourselves on providing a relaxed and fun environment with low instructor to participant ratios and smaller class sizes.  Although the lifeguard skills are being learned, there is not the competition intensity other programs strive for.  Our instructors are all experienced watermen and women with certifications in both CPR and First-Aid.  In addition to Jr. Lifeguard training skills, instruction will also include beach and ocean safety, swimming, surfing, body boarding, body surfing, and beach games.

Our Junior Lifeguard Programs are available at our Manhattan & Redondo Beach locations and offer a variety of scheduling options. Please see below for information specific to your camp location.

Swim Requirement for our Jr. Lifeguard Program:  We do not require a swim test for our program, however, participants will be assessed by their coach on the first day to ensure they are comfortable enough in the water for our program. As a general rule, participants should be able to swim 100 yards in the pool in under 2:30 and tread water for 5 minutes or be able to confidently swim past the breaking waves and return to shore.  Should our coach determine a participant does not meet the minimum program criteria, you will be able to transfer to one of our other BeachSports programs or receive a prorated refund of your camp purchase.

If you’re unsure whether or not your participant meets the minimum swim requirement, below are links to three BeachSports approved swim coaches who can both prepare and pre-approve participants for the program.  Please Contact Us at any time with questions about our program and swim requirements.
