Sponsored by IPRA's Aquatic Committee located within the Facility Management Section, the 27th Annual Lifeguard Games is an exciting opportunity for lifeguards and junior lifeguards to compete for their park district and showcase their skills to their peers. Teams consist of 4 lifeguards where they compete in a series of events that include fitness challenges, teamwork and lifeguard skills. This is a friendly competition that encourages each guard to rise to the challenge and have fun! The judging criteria reflects a combination of rescue skills from different training programs so regardless of your certification agency, this event is suitable for everyone. Participants must possess an active lifeguard certification with at least 40 hours of work prior to the competition. All participants must send a copy of their lifeguard license to Jenn at [email protected]. Registration includes a swag bag and the chance to compete and win the 27th Annual Lifeguard Games!
