Guards-in-Training (GIT)



GIT - Guards in Training:  (Entering 8th grade – 14 years old)

Marinwood's Guards in Training program is a great way to learn the ins and outs of lifeguarding. GIT will develop your leadership skills and sense of responsibility as you work alongside the pool staff shadow-lifeguarding, assisting with swim lessons, participating in exciting training scenarios, and more. Participants do not need to be expert swimmers. Each week will highlight different skills and feature different activities and games, so attending multiple sessions is highly encouraged. Make friends, learn something new and enjoy a summer with Marinwood!
