The Vancouver Lifeguard Association (VLA) is a non-profit organization of volunteers who bring Lifeguards together to work and play. We create opportunities to improve your skills, have fun and participate in your community. 


Join Us! Meet and work with people who have same interests. Come out to socials events and don our cool VLA swag.


VLA Membership is growing fast and welcomes any lifeguard, current or retired, beach or pool, from anywhere around the world. Come out and be a part of something bigger than yourself.
