The Sea Isle City Beach Patrol’s 2018 Junior Lifeguard Program will be held each Tuesday and Thursday, 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., from July 24 through August 9, on the 44th Street Beach.  This program, which is open to male and female applicants ages 14 to 17, will introduce basic lifesaving skills and rescue techniques as an educational and physical training foundation for prospective Beach Patrol employees.

During the Junior Lifeguard Program, Beach Patrol instructors will apply the principles of surf bashing, swimming, running, paddling and ocean rowing to techniques of water rescue and beach management appropriate to the participant’s age and developing skill.  Junior lifeguards developing through the program to the advanced level, who are age 16 or older, may be selected for employment with the SICBP upon graduating the program in August.

The cost to enroll in the SICBP’s Junior Lifeguard Program is $25 per person. A registration form can be downloaded at www.sicbp.com or obtained in person at Beach Patrol Headquarters on Sea Isle’s 44th Street Beach.
