The Marinette Recreation Department will offer American Red Cross Junior Lifeguarding
This program is designed for those children ages 11-14 who are looking to do more in the area of aquatics. This is an introduction to lifeguarding program for children who are interested in becoming a certified lifeguard one day. The class helps students to develop a deeper appreciation of the water and build a stronger foundation of aquatic and leadership skills and knowledge for a future career in lifeguarding. Skill presentation will include first aid, CPR and AED, safety and basic rescues and swimming endurance. This course does not certify students to be lifeguards, but it acts as a stepping stone for those who are not yet old enough to take certifying lifeguarding courses.
The class will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 AM-noon at the Civic Center Pool from June 14 to July 28. Additional on-deck opportunities will be available to students during the month of August. The cost of participation is $40.00 for Marinette city residents and $60.00 for non-city residents. Fees are payable at the time of registration.
Phone registrations are not accepted, but more information is available by calling the Recreation Department at 715-732-5222.
