We encourage Junior Lifeguards to be present each day of the program in order to maximize their skills and program growth.
This is especially important and strongly encouraged the first two weeks of the program as this is a key time for foundational safety lessons as well as for JGs to get to know their instructor and groupmates.
Over the course of the first two weeks of the NBJG Program, Junior Lifeguards must attend at least 2 program days during their normal session, in order to remain enrolled in the program. This requirement applies to both new and returning JG families.
If your family is not able to make this requirement, your JG will be required to attend a 3-hour safety session on Friday, June 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Families who will not be able to complete one of these two options should contact us at NewportJG@nbfd.net prior to processing payment for the program.
Aside from the first-two-weeks requirement, there isn’t a minimum number of days that children have to participate in order to remain enrolled; however, their attendance may impact their ability to participate in certain activities if they miss instructor lessons or their instructor does not feel comfortable with them participating in a certain activity due to safety.
