PIER JUMP FUNDRAISER 

The JG Team is happy to announce the third year of the Pier Jump Fundraiser! We hope everyone is looking forward to taking the leap with their Junior Guard(s)! 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!

  • 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​

    • More information on the swim test will be available soon

  • Pier Jumps are now higher than ever! One of our JG Families donated specially made platforms that will allow participants to jump from the height of the pier railing. These platforms have stairs and a handrail that make it much easier to make the jump!

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.
