The purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services personnel take over.  Candidate must be 15 years old by the last day of class.

What makes Westchester and Fairfield Lifeguard Training different from other programs?

Our student to instructor ratio for skills portion of class is generally 1 instructor to 6 students. The industry standard is 1 to 10. We find the extra input from quality, focused and caring instructors makes a tremendous difference in learning. This increases our cost to run classes, but the results are well worth it.

Lifeguard training prerequisites:
nyc subway

tread water for 2 minutes

nyc subway

300 yard continuous swim

nyc subway

timed brick test

To participate in the course, student must be able to pass prerequisite skills evaluation that includes the following:

♦ Swim 300 yards continuously demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing. You may swim using the front crawl, breaststroke or a combination of both but swimming on the back or side is not allowed. Swim goggles may be used.

♦ Tread water for 2 minutes using only the legs. You should place your hands under your armpits.

♦ Complete a timed event within 1 minute, 40 seconds.

♦ Starting in the water, swim 20 yards. Your face may be in or out of the water. Swim goggles are not allowed.

♦ Surface dive, feet-first or head-first, to a depth of 7 to 10 feet to retrieve a 10-pound object.

♦ Return to the surface and swim 20 yards on your back to return to the starting point with both hands holding the object while keeping your face at or near the surface so you are able to get a breath. You should not swim the distance under water. Exit the water without using a ladder or steps.

If your child has not recently engaged in an activity geared towards increasing swimming endurance, or has not received formal swimming instruction, it is strongly advised that they participate in lifeguard training preparation classes.
