City of Del Mar Junior Lifeguards

We are excited to welcome you the Del Mar Junior Lifeguard Program! Registration opens on Sunday, March 15, 2020 at 8:00 a.m.

The City of Del Mar Junior Lifeguard Program is coming Summer 2020. Boys and girls ages 9 – 15 are encouraged to participate in this exciting opportunity to familiarize themselves with beach and ocean safety, teamwork, and lifeguarding skills. 

Del Mar Junior Lifeguards will learn how to utilize lifesaving resources and strategies when visiting the beach. Education is divided into three different training elements: skills training, physical training, and beach orientation. Junior Guards are introduced to the equipment and tools of lifeguarding. They will be taught the purpose of lifeguard towers, the meaning of warning flags, and how guards successfully work together in teams to accomplish tasks. 

Skills training will prepare participants to respond to common dangers and accidents associated with the marine environment. Junior Guards will also perform mock rescues, learn to spot victims in distress, and become knowledgeable in beach and ocean safety.
