  • Just making sure I am reading this right. I want to inquire for my 14 yr old son. He took the 30 hr Red Cross program last year and I wanted to see if he would do one for the beach.
    So it’s free n it’s 4 Saturday’s in July for 55 mins . He just shows up and there is no physical testing to qualify??

  • Not sure if went through so forgive if duplicate. Son is ten and a swimmer. Would love to join. What are age requirements? How do you sign up? Thanks so much!

  • When will information about this years’ program be posted? Also how old do you have to be to participate?
