Does your child love the ocean? Are you looking for a engaging, educational, and--most importantly--fun way for your child to learn about water safety? See if they have what it takes to be a Sea Bright Junior Guard! Since 2004 the Sea Bright Junior Lifeguard Program has provided a safe and fun way for hundreds of children from all backgrounds to come together and learn about beach and ocean safety. Our Junior Lifeguard program combines elements of open water lifesaving, basic First Aid, CPR and more to provide your child with a holistic Ocean Rescue experience. Junior Guards will walk away with increased confidence in the ocean, valuable life skills and lifelong friends! Ultimately, qualified and physically fit SBOR Junior Lifeguards may even have the opportunity to become lifeguards at Sea Bright upon reaching their 16 th birthday. We can guarantee that our program will foster a life-long love and respect of the ocean in all who participate!

            Junior Guards will complete a variety of activities both in the water

           same from session to session, all ending with a tournament-style “showcase”.

    Yes. We require all Junior Guard participants to be able to swim 5 minutes, unassisted in     the ocean with moderate conditions. Please, keep in mind that the Junior Lifeguard program is not a swim lesson program. Your child must already be a strong swimmer to participate in our programs. Children that do not pass our swim test on day one will not be able to participate in Junior Guards.
  • Is there a uniform?
    • Yes! We require all Junior guards to wear a red SBJG rash guard. This is mandatory and for the safety of all our participants. The price of registration includes a rashguard.
