The purpose of Junior Guard tryouts is to test participants swimming skills and their comfort in an open water environment.  This is not a competitive or timed tryout, but is a method for State Parks lifeguards to evaluate each participants aquatic ability.  State Parks Lifeguards will be on site for aquatic safety supervision.
