Hi Junior Lifeguard Parents, Our HBFD Junior Lifeguard Surf Team is such a fan favorite that we decided to run the team all year. This gives our current Junior Lifeguards an opportunity to practice surfing and learn from our excellent lifeguards. Leading the HBFD JG Surf Team is Captain Greg Eisele, former South African National Champion and World Qualifying Series surfer. He has a staff of highly qualified lifeguards to assist the team. The surf team includes the competition paddling team as well. The team is only offered to current Junior Lifeguards and any skill level, from beginner to advanced. Here are the details: HBFD Junior Lifeguard Surf Team TIME - 6:15 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. DAYS - Tuesdays and Thursdays DATES - October 5 to November 18, 2021 COST - $200 REGISTRATION - www.hbsands.org, use Activity Code 900010, or use this link, HBFD JG Surf Team.

Hi HBFD Junior Lifeguard Parents, We know how much you miss the program and all the awesome instructors. You probably miss the fresh air and sand in your car. We do too. So this October, we are offering an after-school program for all the children in our community. This means that those who were not able to be a HBFD Junior Lifeguard can spend October checking it out. However, currentJunior Lifeguards are welcome to participate. We are offering two classes, Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday, right after school, from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The classes are open to ages 9 to 17. Here are a few things that we ask from you:
Please send this to a friend who might be interested in the summer program, this gives their child a glimpse of the program.
Sign up if your child has time this October, we miss their little faces.
Enjoy your school year.
The registration is open on www.hbsands.org. Just scroll down the page and you will see the link labeled, Marine Safety Education. We can't wait to see you this October! See you on the beach, Huntington Beach Fire Department Marine Safety Division
