Cadet Tryout 2024

JG families,

The JG team is happy to announce we will be holding tryouts for the 2024 Cadet Program on Sunday, March 17th at 1 pm. Tryouts will be located at Long Beach Lifeguard Beach Operations. The Cadet tryout will be taking place on the same day as the Long Beach Lifeguard tryout - allowing prospective Cadets to experience exactly what the Lifeguard Tryout entails. Below is more information on the Cadet Program and the tryout process. 

Cadet Program Details:

Cadets are Junior Lifeguards between 15-17 years of age (as of July 1, 2024) who receive high levels of training throughout the program, shadow lifeguards, and assist instructors. The goal of the Cadet Program is to foster leadership skills while preparing individuals for future careers as lifeguards and other forms of public service.
