By teaching American Red Cross certifications, students are gaining the best possible knowledge of lifeguard procedures. We have classes throughout the year to accomadate the busy schedules of high school and college students. Must be able to Swim 300 yards continuously demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing as well as tread water for two minutes.
