The Junior Lifeguard Assistant Program is a volunteer job development program for youths ages 15 - 18. The program provides veteran Junior Lifeguards with the skills and experience needed for future employment as a professional Lifeguard.

Volunteer Assistants work under the close supervision of the Junior Lifeguard instructor staff to help safeguard the Junior Lifeguard Program area during all aquatic and beach activities. Each day the Assistants receive training and instruction in aquatic safety, Lifeguard skills, first aid and CPR, and their progress is measured throughout the program.

Keep in mind that the assistant program is NOT the same as being a junior guard. Instead, it is more like an internship that will look good on a resume’. Those who help as assistants will receive community service hours that most high schools require to graduate. The Junior Lifeguard Assistant Program has been used to identify potential lifeguard candidates and has produced many of the finest lifeguards in the state.

To sign up, we ask that a parent or guardian show up at the beach on the day of the tryout with the completed/necessary paperwork for their minor (see below). If you're concerned that your child will not pass the tryout/and complete the training process, we recommend that you enroll them in jr. guards. That is the only way to reserve your spot, if your child should fail to become an assistant.
