JUNIOR LIFEGUARD PROGRAM
The Beach Haven Beach Patrol’s Lifeguard in Training Program has turned out to be very popular since its inception. The Program prepares youths who are interested in future lifeguarding positions by teaching them the basics of water safety and rescue. The value of this training was brought home most emphatically in June of 2009 when two previous participants, who were out surfing, rescued three children in addition to assisting an adult attempting to rescue the children, and brought them all safely to shore. The heroic young ladies attributed their calmness and success to the training they received in this program. Applicants must be 14 or 15 years old and must be able to swim comfortably in the ocean to participate in this program.
