On the Beach It’s tryout time for lifeguards; always be prepared

Posted: Friday, April 18, 2014 12:30 am

Saturday morning we’ll have our second lifeguard tryouts of the season. Candidates who are able to swim 500 meters in 9 minutes or less and pass a drug test and interview will have a shot at being beach lifeguards this summer. Our last tryout is May 10.

All the candidates who pass the initial screening will test their skills in a grueling double run-swim-run event in the surf. Completing this event will qualify them to enter our 100-hour lifeguard academy.
