NEW Junior Lifeguard Program

Here's a new opportunity for tweens to learn how to become a lifeguard in Williamson County.

It's often thought that lifeguard programs are for teens. Even younger kids want to learn the practice. So, it's nice to hear that Williamson County Parks and Recreation (WCPR) offers a new Junior Lifeguard Program for ages 11 – 14.

This program teaches water safety, first aid, CPR and AED techniques. Interested youth build self-confidence while getting ready for work as lifeguards. Participants learn about pool safety in a fun and challenging atmosphere.

The program takes place at the Indoor Sports Complex in Brentwood (920 Heritage Way). Students take a pre-test on Saturday, March 16 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. They must pass the pre-test to be eligible for the course. The pre-test is free of charge. The Junior Lifeguard Program takes place March 26 – May 4 (skip April 16 – 20). Classes are on Tuesdays and Fridays from 5 – 7 p.m., and Saturdays 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The course cost is $45.
