PIER JUMP FUNDRAISER 

  • ALL Junior Lifeguards will have the opportunity to jump off of the pier on their designated day, even if a family member doesn't donate to jump with them.

  • Parents or a sibling/relative/friend (over the age of 18) can donate to make memories and jump with their Junior Guard! This is the only time jumping from the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier is allowed!

    • ALL participants are required to pass a "swim test" prior to jumping

  • Donations to the Pier Jump Fundraiser will go towards the Long Beach Junior Lifeguard nonprofit, a partner of the Long Beach Fire Department Junior Lifeguard Program. The nonprofit provides support to the JG program in the way of scholarships, additional equipment, and supplies!

SAFETY & ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • SAFETY is number one. There will be water support from additional lifeguards, Junior Lifeguard Cadets, and Long Beach Lifeguard Marine Safety Staff

  • Spectators will be asked to remain behind the designated coned area to allow enough space for participants and the JG Team

  • We recommend having your Junior Guard stay for the full session on this day, as they will not be bringing their personal belongings with them to the pier.
