Some of the PT you can expect to experience includes but is not limited to: Jetty to Jetty runs, buoy swims, yoga, kayaking, and rescue board races. Our guards are the most fit and well prepared in the state. They are able to reach potential victims in record time which continues to save lives.

Our lifeguard program has deep roots going back to the 1920s. In joining one of our squads you will be connected to lifeguards from the past who have gone on to leadership roles within various different career paths. We support our lifeguards in any professional endeavors they pursue through this Legacy Network.
