About This Activity

Description

The AVA course uses a combination of junior guard and instructor aide training to teach water safety, drowning prevention, and basic swim instruction skills. The course will help develop swimming skills, introduce critical life saving techniques, and cover basic emergency response. This course will also teach the decision-making and communication skills necessary to prepare for future success as a lifeguard or water safety instructor. Please be aware that while the Aquatic Volunteer Academy teaches water safety, it is not a lifeguard certification class. Upon successful completion of the course participants will be eligible to begin volunteering at Covington Aquatic Center as a junior lifeguard and swim instructor aide.
