New Contact for Junior Lifeguards: For more information a new JBLC Junior Lifeguard Facebook Page has been created: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jones-Beach-Junior-Lifeguard-Program/463939110417293
" All New Jones Beach Junior Lifeguard tryouts are being held on , first heat for 100 yard freestyle is @ . This is the ONLY date of the test. The FASTEST times will be given a spot. In the other age groups if there are openings the fastest times that pass the test will be awarded a spot in the program."
"The $50.00 payment for the Junior Lifeguard Program for the 2014 season should be in the form of a check. This is for record keeping purposes. "
At this present time, I am awaiting for the paperwork from the state that all of the previous junior lifeguard parents must fill out and sign. I have tried to make contact through phone and emails. If and only I can secure the paperwork by tomorrow, Thursday, we may start sign ups by this weekend, Sunday.
I spoke with the Jones Beach State Park Superintendent today about the pool and new hire test. All new prospective Junior Lifeguard candidates will need to take the 100-yard swim test on Saturday June 28, 2014, at 8 a.m. sharp. The guidelines for this test are the same as the Jones Beach Lifeguard Test, which are; the fastest times will get the position.
Here is an example; if the 12 year olds have six openings then the six fastest times will be in the program. If the 13 year olds have no openings, then no new children will be selected. This will be the same for each age group.
Lastly, I am at work daily at the beach and my computer time is at a minimum in the morning and night. My cell reception is not good at Robert Moses State Park, therefore, keep in touch with www.jblc.net to understand the steps to take for the summer of 2014 Junior Lifeguards at Jones Beach, opening date is Sunday June 29, 2014 at 7:30 a.m.
