CADET TRYOUTS & Recertification (500 YARD OPEN WATER SWIM)
Time & Location
About the Event
Cadets are junior lifeguards ages 15-17 who have been selected as leaders of the JG program and demonstrate interest in becoming Long Beach lifeguards or pursuing another career in public safety. Cadets will receive higher levels of training in first aid and rescue techniques, shadow Long Beach lifeguards, and assist JG instructors. The goal of the Cadet Program is to foster leadership skills while preparing individuals for future careers as lifeguards and in other forms of public service.
The tryout consists of a 500-yard ocean swim. This swim is also mandatory for returning cadets as a recertification.
