2020 Junior Lifeguards has been cancelled.
To help protect the health and safety of the public, staff and Junior Lifeguard participants, the City of San Clemente is regretfully cancelling the third and final session of the 2020 Junior Lifeguard Program that was planned to start in mid-July. The first two Junior Lifeguard sessions have already been cancelled, and the City has been monitoring the State’s progress toward moving into Stage 4 of the Pandemic Resilience Roadmap. Since that is not expected until after the planned start of the final Junior Lifeguard session, and due to the lead time required to conduct swim try-outs and prepare for the session, the City is cancelling the entire Junior Lifeguard Summer 2020 program. This is consistent with actions by most other Orange County and Southern California agencies concerning their Junior Lifeguard programs.
The City looks forward to offering the Junior Lifeguard program next summer.
The San Clemente Junior Lifeguard Program is an ocean and beach safety program for young people ages 9-17. Participants receive education and experience in ocean safety, first aid, rescue techniques, body surfing, board surfing, body boarding, physical fitness, and, Marine Safety operations.
