Shimoda LSC has developed Junior Lifesaving activities since 1990 to prevent drowning and to promote safe beaches to children. Mainly we emphasise instruction in how to enjoy beaches and first aid to primary and junior high school children.
The program is for local children to learn how to enjoy the beaches and the first aid in Shimoda and Minami Izu areas, where Shimoda LSC are patrolling.
The goal is to protect their own local beach by themselves. Also we teach self rescue (protect yourself from danger) to them.
It is implemented by the support from our sponsor "SHIPS Co., Ltd".
SHIPS Junior Lifesaving program since 1996. The program is implemented to enhance the enjoyment of the beautiful beaches by those who come from different parts of Japan to Shimoda and Minami Izu.

Shimoda LSC is organising the program and SHIPS Co., Ltd are supporting financially.
