Junior Lifeguard Mission
The mission of the Silver Strand Junior Lifeguard program is to provide quality water safety instruction and education.
The Junior Lifeguard program offers kids safe marine recreational opportunities. Further, the program is designed to improve a child's physical conditioning, their understanding and respect for the environment, and respect for themselves and others. The program provides education on topics such as lifeguard procedures, CPR and first aid.
The mission is accomplished with activities including instruction and practice in open water swimming, paddle boarding, body surfing, surfing, kayaking, and self rescue. Respect for the environment is increased by the understanding gained with daily physical contact with the environment and through lecture and discussion of pertinent marine and aquatic topics. The students gain respect for themselves through personal progress and accomplishments achieved while participating in the Silver Strand Junior Lifeguard Program. Respect for others is increased by contact with compassionate instructors and by working with other kids in a team building environment.
