Winter 2022 — UCSB Jr. Lifeguards After School Program —

Due to UCSB Campus restrictions in response to COVID-19, all participants must show proof of being vaccinated for COVID-19 or show proof of negative COVID-19 test taken within 3 days of participation. Proof of vaccination must be shown on the first day of attendance, proof of negative test must be shown to instructor at each class.

Join UCSB Jr. Lifeguards Director Ryan Collins for this afternoon program.

We are pleased to announce our Jr. Guard program will continue with afterschool hours throughout the winter. If your child enjoyed Jr. Guards in the summer, they are going to love the afterschool program at UCSB Campus Point. Two hours a day, Mondays & Wednesdays and/or Fridays. Let your child experience the camaraderie, ocean sports, marine & safety education, and active fun of our Summer Jr. Guard program but in a condensed 2 hr/day format. Uniforms are available but optional and wetsuits are highly recommended. 

Program topics include oceanography, first aid, CPR, water rescue techniques, mutual cooperation, competition techniques, and lifesaving methods.

Our Instructors are a mix of local teachers and college students with many years of lifeguarding experience and Jr Lifeguard program participation. Program staff provides a fun and safe aquatic education to UCSB JG participants.
