Where quality of life is a way of life.

Junior Lifeguard Club

Providing high activity challenges for youth.

The Junior Lifeguard Club was created by the Lifesaving Society with the goal of giving teenagers between the ages of 8 years and 15 years the chance to develop leadership and teamwork skills amongst their peers.

Junior Lifeguard Club members are encouraged to develop skills based on personal bests in swimming, lifesaving, water safety knowledge and physical fitness while having fun in a safe, aquatic environment. This program provides high activity challenges in an energetic ‘club’ atmosphere both on deck and in the pool.

What are the prerequisites to join?

  • Swimmers must be between the ages of 8 and 15 years
  • Swimmers must be comfortable in deep water
  • Swimmers must be able to swim 75 metres (3 lengths) continuously
  • Swimmers must be able to tread water for 2 minutes

WaterLog and Recognition Seals

Official Waterlogs and Recognition Seals are tools to support and recognize participant’s personal bests. Members log each goal in their individual Waterlog. Members will receive Recognition Seals based upon their personnel bests in each program category.

The following are the program categories for individual goal setting and recognition seals:

  • Community Education Seals
  • Leadership & Teamwork Seals
  • Lifesaving Knowledge Seals
  • Lifesaving Skills Seals
  • Swimming Seals
  • Fitness Seals
  • Competition Seals

These skills and activities are taught by a Lifesaving Society Instructor (LSI) and each club member will set individual goals and work with their Coach/Instructor in order to achieve them.
