North Texas Guard Games

2017 Sponsors

North Texas Aquatics Association is grateful to our sponsors who help support our organization
and help fund the  North Texas Guard Games every year. 




Thank you for your interest in sponsoring the 2017 North Texas Guard Games, an annual Lifeguarding competition hosted by the North Texas Aquatics Association. The North Texas Aquatics Association is a subsidiary of the Texas Public Pool Council, covering its respective Regions 1 and 2. The mission of the North Texas Aquatics Association is to maintain a knowledgeable, productive and cohesive organization, and to strive to promote, maintain and be creative in educating the public, as well as other aquatic professionals, in programming, service, and management.
In addition, the North Texas Aquatics Association works to develop and maintain the health and safety of all types of aquatics facilities within the area and around the state. 


The North Texas Guard Games is held annually and this year will be our 20th Guard Games Competition! It is held at a difference facility each year over the course of two days, with eight events total, four per day. We draw an average of 40 Lifeguard Teams and 4 Junior Lifeguard Teams from around the state, not just the North Texas area. This year we are being hosted by the City of Grapevine at Dove Waterpark and Pleasant Glade Pool. 


The competition involves fitness events, lifeguarding skills events, knowledge events, and a relay race or obstacle course. The eight events the competition teams participate in are: Scenario, Fitness, Scanning, First Aid, Passive CPR/AED, Spinal, the Obstacle Course, and a Special event which varies from year to year. Additionally, participants are able to enhance those skills and decision-making abilities, which improve communities' confidence in their local lifeguards and aquatics programs. 


In 2016, we had teams from Georgetown, Lubbock, the Houston area, and Oklahoma in addition to DFW metroplex teams. The North Texas Guard Games is not limited to a specific certification discipline and we draw teams spanning multiple disciplines, including American Red Cross, Ellis and Associates, YMCA, Boy Scouts of America, and StarGuard. The North Texas Guard Games is a preliminary to the Texas State Championship Event, with the top three teams qualifying for the State Competition. 


The North Texas Guard Games Committee is a volunteer committee of about 20-25 aquatic professionals from across the DFW metroplex and spans multiple disciplines including American Red Cross and Ellis and Associates. Since we are a non-partisan committee with varying certification disciplines, we are able to make each event as compatible as possible with every Lifeguarding certification discipline. 


Sponsors are being asked to choose from a variety of ways to help NTAA and the competition. While any donation will be appreciated, listed below are the different sponsorship opportunities. We welcome the opportunity to feature your business across our aquatic network. Your audience will include; Aquatic Directors, Supervisors, Managers,  Lifeguards, Spectators, and Industry Professionals. We look forward to forming a great partnership!
