Our Program is coordinated by actual California State Lifeguard Instructors who are trained in advanced first aid and rescue techniques and in most cases were junior guards themselves. It is for this reason that when you enroll your child into JG’s you can rest assured that he or she is under the best of care.
An emphasis on ocean safety and proper water etiquette will be stressed and through daily workouts and free time JG’s will increase their water safety skills and become more comfortable and confident in the ocean. All these activities are supervised by open water lifeguards with many years of ocean rescue experience and advanced training in First Aid and CPR. Many of our instructors also hold EMT certificates as well.
