JUNIOR LIFEGUARD (Age13 - 14)

 CADET PROGRAM    (Age 15 -16)

SVOR's Jr Progaram is designed to improve ocean swimming techniques with an emphasis on ocean safety. We teach basic  lifeguarding skills while having fun. We hope to encourage participants to one day become certified ocean lifeguards. Skills are taught as “lifeguard competition” events. As long as ocean conditions permit juniors & cadets will train in the water.

On more challenging days, as a safety measure, the focus shifts to entries and exits of the ocean. Participants will greatly improve their ocean awareness and comfortability. Participants are encouraged and not forced to partake in activities.

Participants who chose not to participate in an activity must remain with the group or a designated instructor.

Participants will be in the water most of the sessions, unless conditions are prohibitive.
