The Newport Beach Junior Lifeguard Program is an ocean-based program for youth ages 9 to 15. It focuses on educating participants to recognize potential hazardous conditions associated with an ever-changing aquatic environment. Activities will center on ocean skill building, physical fitness, and lifeguarding skills.
Lessons, skills, and events JGs accomplish each summer include:
