ABOUT US

Avila Beach Junior Lifeguards

We are an outstanding Central Coast Junior Lifeguard Program that was established in 2001 with 28 kiddos for the purpose of providing ocean safety awareness/education and adventure. Since that time, our program has grown to a capacity of 200 Avila Beach Junior Guards per year. 

We attribute much of our success to the fact that we are a proud family of instructors made-up of watermen, water-women, teachers, and coaches who strive to provide our Junior Lifeguards with an unforgettable ocean-front experience that acquaints them with ocean safety skills, coastal awareness & ambassadorship, and activities that reiterate the importance of self-respect, team-work, and looking at challenges as opportunities to rise up and do their best.

While we believe that competition fosters opportunity for tremendous growth, we emphasize and reiterate the following priorities (in order) each summer for the purpose of social, emotional, and physical well-being/development:


  1. BE SAFE

  2. HAVE FUN

  3. BE AND DO YOUR BEST
