JLC provides an action-packed challenge for kids who love the water but who want more than lessons. JLC is for quick learners, those between levels or programs, and those who thrive in an energetic learning environment.


Bronze medallion teaches an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water rescue education – judgment, knowledge, skill and fitness. Rescuers learn tows, carries and release methods in preparation for challenging rescues of increased risk. Lifesavers learn to respond to increasingly complex resuscitation situations involving conscious and unconscious victims with an obstructed airway. Lifesavers develop stroke efficiency and endurance in a timed swim. Bronze Medallion is a prerequisite for the Bronze Cross Award. Prerequisites: Minimum age 13 years old.


Bronze Cross is designed for lifesavers who want the challenge of more advanced training including an introduction to safe supervision in aquatic facilities. It teaches the difference between lifesaving and lifeguarding, the principles of emergency procedures and teamwork. Lifesavers learn how to rescue a spinal-injured victim and a pulse-less victim. Bronze Cross is the prerequisite award for all advanced training programs in lifesaving, lifeguarding and leadership. Prerequisites: Bronze Medallion (does not have to be current), 14 years of age within 30 days of the exam.
