The events tested skills in First Aid/CPR, Water Surveillance and Rescue, and Spinal Management. This marks the fourth time since 2019 that The Woodlands Township has taken the top spot in the Gulf Coast Guard Games.




The Gulf Coast Guard Games is a regional lifeguard competition that requires lifeguards to react to simulated scenarios in which the team must work together to identify the challenges and dangers to those in the area. Teams are judged on accurately identifying and appropriately responding to the issues presented, as well as the quality of customer service they provide during the challenge.

The top two Township lifeguard teams will be advancing to the state competition set to take place on Monday, July 31, 2023.
