American Red Cross Programs

NEW!Junior Lifeguard Training
The Junior Lifeguarding course is a key component of the Lifeguarding program. Designed for ages 11-14, it helps build a foundation of knowledge, attitudes and skills for future lifeguards. 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 rescue tube, and first aid, CPR and AED. Participants also have the opportunity to shadow lifeguards in rotation and swim instructors to get a real sense of being on the job.

Andrew Oakley
Andrew Oakley I have been working for Si View for a total of two years and have loved every bit of it! I’m attending Mount Si High School as a senior. I absolutely love playing music! I just recently attended the Essentially Ellington Jazz Festival in New York. Mount Si was one of the top fifteen jazz bands in the Nation to attend this amazing festival! Working at Si View has been great. I have learned so much about myself! The skills I obtain from teaching and guarding are all so useful! I hope to use them to my advantage in the future! I’m looking forward to the times to come at Si View!
