So if your child has not been training for this event, now is a good time to start to get in condition to be able to pass the swim test. The swim tests are only held as per the schedule below.
The Newport Beach Junior Lifeguard is an amazing program. Both of my children participated in it, and they learn ocean safety, as well as beach safety from the Junior Lifeguard instructors. The photos in this post are of an event of the Newport Beach Junior Lifeguard program called the monster mile, where the junior guards run a mile and swim back a mile. It is impressive to see all of them swimming together!
