StarGuard ELITE was formed to provide a complete aquatic risk prevention and lifeguard training system unmatched in the industry.

What We Do

Water Parks | Aquatic Facilities

Risk Prevention System

The risk prevention system includes establishment as a StarGuard Training Center, lifeguard licensing, an innovative audit program, on-site visits for staff development, annual client CAMP (Conference for Aquatic Management Professionals), a groundbreaking online portal to manage operations data all in one place, litigation support, and much, much more! The client-centric approach includes flat-fee pricing to help you get the most value, supported by exceptional service from leaders and innovators in the water park and aquatics industry.

Industry-leading Training

Elite operations demand high-quality training programs and we deliver: StarGuard is an internationally recognized curriculum with an experiential approach to learning and a focus on professionalism and competence. Ready-set-go is the first certification specifically for slide dispatch operators. Training for other personnel who work in specific circumstances such as limited (very shallow) water, water sports attractions, attendants, lifeguard supervisors, aquatic managers, and pool operators, prepare your staff to provide elite guest service and take action in the event of an emergency.

Why Us

We started StarGuard ELITE because the lifeguard training business was stagnant and lacking true competition. We heard from operators who were frustrated with overbearing practices and high prices. There was a lack of true operator vision when developing lifeguard training. We introduced the first slide dispatcher certification program because as operators we knew that water slide injuries are the most common insurance claims for aquatic facilities. StarGuard ELITE takes the best practices of the industry and integrates technology to increase customer satisfaction, operational safety, and leadership development. StarGuard ELITE is the setting the new standard. Clients now have the opportunity to make a choice to improve the safety of their pools and slides.
