SAN DIEGO, June 22, 2010 – The American Red Cross will host the annual summer Lifeguard Games on August 1, 2010 at the City of Coronado Aquatics Center located at 1845 Strand Way, Coronado, California. The event starts at 8.00 a.m. and ends at 1.00 p.m. after an awards ceremony. Participant registration opens at 7.00 a.m.
Lifeguard teams from San Diego and the Imperial Counties will participate in a series of group and individual events such as the submerged victim towing, active victim rescues, 50-yard crawl swim with rescue tube, 10-pound brick carry, and several new fun and exciting events.
The Lifeguard Games is a morning event where Lifeguards can show off their skills in a non-emergency, non-life threatening atmosphere, where they can participate in friendly competition and interact with the public. Members of the community are invited to come and enjoy some lively competition and cheer for their local teams. This family affair is a great opportunity for adults and children to spend a day by Coronado Beach, cheering on local teams and learning the importance of water safety.
