Swim Lessons and Lifeguard Training

Swim Lessons for Registration Form Coming Spring, 2017
Learn-to-swim lessons are offered during the summer months to children of all ages at beaches throughout the community. The lessons are taught by a select group of Highland Lakes’ lifeguards who are certified as Water Safety Instructors. Sign-ups begin Memorial Day weekend at the Clubhouse. Lessons are given either during the week (Monday through Thursday) or on weekends.

In addition to the Learn-to-Swim program, lessons and programs are offered to older children and teenagers who want to become lifeguards.

Guard Start
Offered during July, this course teaches all of the components of lifeguarding and water safety, and is offered for swimmers between the ages of 11 and 14. Instructors for this class focus on responsibilities of lifeguarding and provide instruction in fitness, leadership, professionalism, and swimming development.

Lifeguard Training

The course, which spans 15 days or so, begins with a pre-test for those interested in becoming certified by the American Red Cross. Registration forms are available at the activity center—a $50 non-refundable deposit must be submitted at the Club office, c/o Nicole Gagliostro, Water Safety Director. Additional information about the course is listed on the registration form.
