The California State Junior Lifeguards Program is designed for children ages 8-15. We are dedicated to sharing beach and ocean safety information with participants. Our goal is to provide a program of physical fitness, first aid and CPR training, and exposure to ocean oriented sports and activities.

Our program is coordinated by actual California State Lifeguards who are trained in advanced first aid and rescue techniques and have many years of ocean rescue experience. Many instructors hold EMT certificates as well. In most cases they were Junior Lifeguards themselves! It is for this reason that you can be rest assured that your child is under the best of care while at San Clemente State Junior Lifeguards.

An emphasis on ocean safety and proper water etiquette will be stressed. Throughout daily workouts and free-time, Junior Lifeguards will increase their water safety skills and become more comfortable and confident in the ocean.

 

2020 Registration is CLOSED

Updated 7/16/2020: We were able to operate a modified program for this summer, however we are completely full at this time. If you have questions please reach out to the specific program for assistance.

Public health officials are advising the public to walk, run, hike and bike in their local neighborhoods and walk to parks. Most importantly, the public is being asked not to congregate in the outdoors. Everyone has the responsibility to “Flatten the COVID-19 Curve at Parks” by maintaining a social distance of 6 feet or more when recreating in the outdoors and staying home if they are sick. If visitors cannot maintain social distancing, they need to leave the park.

Updated 4/28/2020: In an effort to protect public health and the safety of visitors, volunteers and staff as the state responds to the continued threat of COVID-19 (coronavirus), California State Parks is postponing the Junior Lifeguard Program registration for summer programs until June and will reevaluate at that time. Participants who have already enrolled will not be dropped. If you have questions please reach out to the specific program for assistance.
