Family & Kids
Backyard Lifeguards offers a variety of water safety programs for homes, schools, and businesses that can be taught in the water or on dry land. Our water safety training and education programs are brought right to your location, and are customized for the age and interests of each audience. Topics include drowning prevention, helping others, pool party planning, pool party host liability, and more.
Aquatic courses are available year-round. Non-aquatic courses are available from September through November and from January through March.
Home Pool Evaluation
Backyard Lifeguards will tour your pool area with you, mapping size, shape, depth, features, and available rescue equipment.
We will identify optimal observation spots and areas where swimmers may experience difficulty, so you can best supervise your pool when not engaging the services of a professional.
We’ll also help you complete a Home Pool Safety checklist and set goals for unchecked items.
So that all participants can benefit from both the safety information and our specialist’s observations, we recommend the evaluation and presentation be conducted together, especially for private pool owners.
A great program for homeowners with a recently purchased pool, or new parents in a home with a pool.
