Tryouts for April 24th
Updated: Apr 17
Thank you for participating in the Huntington Beach Fire Department Junior Lifeguard Program Tryout. We are so happy to offer a program to all of our returning and new families. For this tryout on April 24, 2021, at Golden West College, there are some guidelines that we all have to abide by: please wear a mask at all times on the GWC campus; use social distancing during the entire event; your future JG must be prepared to swim because deck changes are not permitted; and only one parent per participant is allowed on deck. The time slots are 20 minutes so we can accommodate all the families. Attached is the map of the campus and where to park to access the pool, as well as the map of the participant’s progression.
Junior Lifeguard Tryout at 8:00 a.m. to 10:20 a.m., ONLY
Sand Crab Tryout at 10:40 a.m. to 12:20 p.m., ONLY
The Check-In process begins at the gate located at the Parking Lot A. Each group will then walk, socially distant to the Greet Gate near the pool. The Marine Safety Lifeguard staff will assign each participant a Swim Lane for the 100 yard swim. After successfully completing the Swim portion, the participant will move to Deep Water Lanes. Again, after completing that portion, which includes the 5-minute treading water and swimming underwater for 10 yards, the participant is complete. The participant and the parent will be guided to the Completion and Registration area. The HBFD Marine Safety Lifeguard staff will explain the registration process and other requirements. If you have any questions, please ask one of the HBFD Marine Safety Lifeguard staff.
Please also print out and complete the tryout form prior to your arrival to expedite the tryout process.
Good luck to all who are trying out!!!!
