The YMCA believes that preventing water accidents and saving lives is worth the hours of training and dedication essential to becoming an aquatic safety assistant or a lifeguard.

YMCA aquatic safety assistants (YASA) are 14 -15-year-olds who are interested in becoming lifeguards when they turn 16 years of age. YMCA-certified lifeguards are physically trained, mentally alert, and have the maturity to safely guard an aquatic area.
