If you are a new Junior Lifeguard participant, (i.e. have never participated in a State Junior Lifeguard Program before), or if you did not participate in a State Junior Lifeguard Program last summer, you are REQUIRED to attend a tryout. Tryouts are non competitive and are used to ensure a minimum ability in the water.
Each new participant is required to demonstrate:
A continuous 100 yard swim
A 10 yard underwater swim
Treading water for 3 minutes
Time standards for the 100 yard swim are as follows:
Ages 9 - 11: under 2:40
Ages 12 - 13: under 2:30
Ages 14 - 15: under 2:00
New Participant Tryout Dates:
Saturday, May 14, 2016 -- 9:00am - 12:00 noon
Saturday, May 28, 2016 -- 9:00am - 12:00 noon
Saturday, July 9, 2016 -- 9:00am - 12:00 noon
NOTE: Sessions fill up on a first come first serve basis. Show up early and wait in line, as this will better your chance at securing a spot in our program. If we cannot fit you into one of our sessions, you will be put on a waitlist.
All Tryouts will be held at the Half Moon Bay High School Pool. Half Moon Bay High School is located at the Northern end of Lewis Foster Dr. and does not have a street address.
