At Long Branch Lagoon, our safety slogan is "It's fun to be confident, especially when it's around water!" That is why we are proud to offer the Learn to Swim Program through the American Red Cross. "The American Red Cross offers a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate swimming and water safety program that teaches you, your child or other family members how to swim skillfully and safely, and think and act safely in, on and around the water."

Junior Lifeguard Program - Ages 11-14
The Junior Lifeguarding course (formerly known as "GuardStart") is a key component of the Lifeguarding program. It creates a lifeguarding feeder program to help aquatics supervisors recruit the most promising Lifeguarding candidates for future employment.
Junior Lifeguarding has a strong focus on developing swimming skills to help participants meet the Lifeguarding course prerequisite. The course also introduces participants to lifesaving skills, such as in-water rescues, use of a rescue tube, and first aid, CPR and AED. Participants also have the opportunity to shadow lifeguards in rotation to get a real sense of being on the job. With a one-time fee of $40 participants in the Junior Lifeguard Program will receive:
