Junior Lifeguard

Junior Lifeguard Preparation Courses


Waterworks is offering a series of Junior Lifeguard preparation courses that are designed to prepare a child for any of the various Junior Lifeguard programs throughout Orange County and to improve their chances at passing tryout requirements for the program.

We are encouraging the students to sign up for as many sessions as they can make so that they can improve upon their endurance and be more confident in the ocean. They will be taught by an Instructor with a strong competitive swimming background and extensive experience in the ocean.
