About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, December 16, 2021.

The Lifesaving Society's Bronze Cross begins the transition from lifesaving to lifeguarding and prepares candidates for their responsibilities as assistant lifeguards. Candidates strengthen and expand their lifesaving skills and begin to apply the principals and techniques of active surveillance in aquatic facilities. Bronze Cross emphasizes the importance of teamwork and communication in preventing and responding to aquatic emergencies.
