Silver Strand Junior Lifeguards

 

Youth Aide Tryout is March 3rd at 0900 hours. Arrive early with a parent/legal guardian for sign in . The swim is 1000 yards in cold ocean water, shortly followed by a run-swim-run (200-400-200)

Interview times and dates will be assigned  to  those trying out after successful completion of swim tests.

All returning  Youth Aides must swim but don't have to interview.  Every year as a State Lifeguard we must do a requal swim and meet the 20 minute requirement to maintain our position as a State Lifeguard.

 

Our tryout is intended to match that of those trying out for a Seasonal Lifeguard position.
