The book contains more than 70 proven training activities divided into chapters by type of lifeguard skill. Each activity is short enough to be part of an in-service or class warm-up session. Most have variations, allowing for continued challenges of participants' performances through increasing levels of difficulty.
The drills, games, and activities improve lifeguards'
- general aquatic skills and physical fitness;
- surveillance, emergency response, and rescue skills; and
- teamwork and problem-solving skills.
Lifeguard Training Activities and Games is the only resource that provides a blueprint for ongoing training from start to finish. Following the training ideas and guidance, including safety, scanning, rescue skills, emergency response, conditioning, and teamwork, leads to the development of a high-performing lifeguard staff.
