Registration is now open for the Ventnor City Beach Patrol Junior Lifeguard Program for Summer 2021!
Our Junior Lifeguard program is designed to educate children on beach and ocean safety. We strive to promote solid interpersonal relationships, build teamwork and introduce children to the skills required to become a lifeguard. Most of all we want our children to have a fun, safe experience enjoying and learning about the ocean and beach.
This year we will be breaking up the program into two, 3-day groups:
Ages 5-9: Monday, July 5 through Wednesday, July 7, 2021 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Ages 10-14: Thursday, July 8 through Saturday, July 10 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
All classes will be held at Ventnor City Beach Patrol Headquarters, Suffolk Avenue and the beach (We will not hold the program in thunder/lightning/heavy downpour).
Each day we will meet at a designated area. We will start with a team stretch, a warm up run and then break into rotating stations. The third day of each group (Wednesday, July 7th and Saturday, July 10th) will hold the competitions in the beach run, surf dash and beach flags.
Registration: Signs ups will be held at the VCBP Headquarters at Suffolk Ave and the Beach from June 1st through July 1st. The cost is $10.00 per child (cash or check) and will include a Jr. Lifeguard T-shirt. Click here to download registration form
The junior lifeguards should arrive on time each day. Please send your child in a bathing suit with a towel and a labeled water bottle. Children should apply sunscreen before arriving. We will have safety measures in place to keep our children distanced and safe throughout the day.
