What do lifeguards do all winter? Other water stuff! Here's Anna, diving coach at Lafayette High School (Wildwood, Missouri) and Theresa, swim coach at Wentzville School District's Timberland High School. We love these small mighty summertime BYLGs!

These cuties are sporting the vintage 2010 "LOVE" T-shirt, BYLG's first team member swag design. Many future generation rescuers have worn these, passed down from lifeguard to lifeguard. (To their mom, thanks for the photos. Feel free to come out of retirement any time. Your paddleboard awaits . . .)

'Tragedy was averted': How Glen Ellyn students saved man from drowning 10/05/2023

Yesterday we shared a story of a tragedy where people did nothing. Today a story of a tragedy avoided. This is what can happen when people DO SOMETHING without endangering themselves. By the way, they're 11 years old. Atta way, guys.

'Tragedy was averted': How Glen Ellyn students saved man from drowning Four close friends were hanging out around Lake Ellyn when they heard a man in the water yell for help. What happened next earned the elementary school students awards from Glen Ellyn police.


Seven people reported seeing something unsafe. After the tragedy occurred. Did any one of those seven--SEVEN!--think to intervene? To say something? To report something? To do something? Please don't be a bystander. Watch your child, not your phone. Remind and help other parents to do the same.

It's a worldwide community! We were thrilled to be so graciously welcomed by our fellow GUARDAVIDAS at Vidanta. Many hotels and resorts do not have lifeguards. But this crew is AMAZING, working three 8-hour shifts to cover beaches and pools from 7 AM to 11 PM. (A separate crew guards the waterpark.) Led by the professionalism of national guardsman, search & rescue paramedic, and triathlete Salomon Perez, their workouts--OOF! Thank you for having us!

The Hardest Job in Multisport? Triathlon Lifeguard. 09/30/2023

The St. Louis community is one of only a few in the country with access to professional lifeguard services for open-water events. Thank you, MSE Racing, Big Shark Bicycle Company, and Swim Across America for entrusting your swims to us.

"seek out the most qualified triathlon lifeguards available, instead of recruiting any warm body at the last minute to meet the ratio requirements for sanctioning. With triathlon volunteer participation on the decline, it becomes even more important for races to budget for paying qualified lifeguards"

The Hardest Job in Multisport? Triathlon Lifeguard. Forget what you learned from "Baywatch" - lifeguarding, specifically lifeguarding a triathlon, involves a complex series of decisions to keep athletes safe in a crowded, chaotic open-water swim where lives are literally on the line.
