The City of Goodyear will offer a Junior Lifeguard Program for youth ages 12 - 14 years old. If interested in becoming a lifeguard in the future, this program will expose participants to a variety of guarding skills. Experiences may include assisting with swim lessons, lifeguard surveillance, special events, customer service skills, safety rules/regulations, and aquatic facility maintenance.

The Junior Guard program requires an application, interview, and water test. Please submit an application by May 5th. Participants who are accepted into the program will be expected to commit to 40 scheduled volunteer hours at the pool upon completion of the course. However, volunteering is not required. For safety reasons, participants must attend all classes to be eligible for volunteer hours. Participants will receive a Junior Guard volunteer shirt, hat, whistle, and valuable experience. 

Please note that this is NOT a program that teaches the participant how to swim. The class is limited to 12 students.
