This course is meant to provide a foundation of aquatic knowledge and leadership skills and attitudes for future successful completion of the Red Cross Lifeguarding course. This is not a certification course. Students receive a certificate of completion. Lessons and activities are derived from the American Red Cross Guardstart: Lifeguarding Tomorrow Program. The program will be taught by our Waterfront Directors and qualified instructors.
The course meets primarily at Jennings Beach, but the program will have a meeting schedule TBD so students can experience swimming at several Town beaches. Parents must provide transportation to different meeting locations.
