SGA Lifeguard Certification Program

We strive to produce the most professional lifeguard team in the industry.   While being a lifeguard can be a very fun and rewarding job, becoming a lifeguard is no easy task.  A lifeguard must be mature, reliable, vigilant, and professional at all times.  We welcome anyone who possesses these characteristics to join one of our Lifeguard Certification Classes.  Our classes are open to the public (not just our hired staff).  For more information on our Lifeguard Certification Program, contact us here.

Prerequisites for the Lifeguard Certification Class:

  • Must be at least 15 years old.
  • Swim 300 yards continuously, demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing.
  • Tread water for 2 minutes using only the legs.

    • Starting in the water, swim 20 yards.
    • Surface dive, feet-first or head-first, to a depth of 7 to 10 feet to retrieve a 10-pound object.
