COVID-19 Notice

Due to the restrictions in the Public Health Order, and in thoughtful consideration of the risks and well-being of participants and staff, Santa Cruz Junior Guards will be canceled this summer. Although the program is canceled, we plan to offer free Virtual Guards for the first time. Understandably, a virtual program is not the same experience, but we wanted to provide an opportunity for participants to continue developing their skills as well as learn water safety.

City offices are temporarily closed to the public until further notice in response to COVID-19.

Captain Corp volunteers function as role models for Junior and Little Guards participants and assist instructors with aquatic safety through participation, education and creating a positive learning environment.
