The Pensacola Beach Junior Lifeguard program is seeking aspiring lifeguards between the ages of 13 and 15 to join an exciting and challenging two-week training session this summer on Casino Beach.
Tryouts for the Junior Lifeguard Program will take place Saturday, June 3 (session one) and Saturday, July 1 (session two) at 7 a.m. at Quietwater Beach. The tryout will consist of an approximately 400-yard open water swim in waist-deep water, followed by a one-mile run on the sand. Applicants must attend the tryout to be considered for the program.
During the program, junior lifeguards will learn about ocean rescue and medical care, participate in rescue drills, shadow Pensacola Beach Lifeguards and enjoy beach recreation time.
There will be two program options for applicants accepted into the Junior Lifeguard Program, running from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday for two weeks each:
- Session one: June 12-23
- Session two: July 10-21
The program cost is $200 per person, and parents are asked to bring a checkbook to the tryout. A parent must be present at the tryout.
