2015 - Lifeguard Try Outs and Pre-Season Schedule

You can find a schedule showing the pre-season beach patrol testing and training dates here.  If you will be returning for the 2015 season it is your responsibility to send in the pre-employment application so I know that you are returning.  This is extremely important since the swim test for returning lifeguards is the day after the test for new applicants.  If I don't know you are returning I will be forced to fill your spot with a new applicant. 

Lifeguard Test Date:
Saturday, May 23 at 10AM (for new applicants)
Sunday, May 24 at 10AM  (for returning lifeguards)

Make-Up Test (if needed)
A make up test will be scheduled if it should be necessary. 
If there will be a make-up test the date and time will be posted here after the initial test.  If there is no posting then assume there is no make-up test.

Where:
St. Francis Community Pool.  Located at 4700 Long Beach Boulevard, Brant Beach, NJ, 08008.

The Test:

  1. Applicants must swim 500m (22 lengths of the 25yd pool) in less than 10 minutes to be eligible for employment.  Only the freestyle swimming stroke is allowed.  Goggles and swim caps are permitted but diving starts are not.
  2. To be eligible for employment applicants must demonstrate the ability retrieve a submerged dive brick.
  3. There will be a brief interview (5 to 10 minutes) for new applicants.
  4. The swim test carries the most weight in the hiring process.

Make sure you bring goggles and your completed Pre-Employment Application to the test!
