Licensed Lifeguards

Gurnee Park District lifeguards are licensed by Jeff Ellis & Associates, the premier lifeguard licensing body in the world. Our goal is to provide a safe, customer-friendly aquatic environment for all.  Five independent and unannounced safety audits are performed with lifeguard staff and management annually to ensure that we are meeting the highest safety standards.  Routine in-house training and auditing are also performed.

Blue Devil Swim Club (BDSC)

BDSC is an affiliate of the Gurnee Park District. Swimmers must be between 6 and 19 years old and must be able to swim both freestyle (with rhythmic breathing) and backstroke one length of the pool without stopping.  Daily year-round practice emphasizes stroke mechanics, starts, turns, training and nutrition. Swimmers are encouraged to compete in various swim meets. For information, call BDSC at (847) 204-6997 or visit
