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 participant's aquatic ability.  State Parks Lifeguards will be on site for aquatic safety supervision.

All participants must demonstrate successful completion of the tryout before they are admitted into the Jr. Lifeguard Program.
