The Earl Mah Aquatic Centre in Prince Rupert has its first three Guard Squad members to achieve their Bronze Stars in the program.

Nathan Jardim And Erik Volpert have been training with the squad since they were eight years of age. Participating in Junior Lifeguard Club and achieving their Rookie, Ranger, and Star patrol awards. At the age of 13, they moved up into the newly created Guard Squad where they continue to pursue their Lifeguarding certificates.

Quin Diep Joined the Guard Squad in 2010. Quin took on a personal goal to become stronger in Rescues, First-aid and personal fitness.

All three Club members still actively participate in Lifesaving, and Lifeguarding training, with a goal to become strong Lifeguards.  Through their club involvement they have and still participate in setting up, running and taking down facility special events. They also train amongst the active lifeguards and In-services, and have a great time when we have guest speakers or field trips.

There are soon to be many more hard working Guard Squad members achieving their certificates.

The Guard Squad wrapped up the season with a canoe adventure donated by North Coast School of Canoeing.
