Sea Isle City Beach Patrol Tryouts
Working hard to earn a spot!
Sea Isle City Beach Patrol's 2017 test for prospective lifeguards will be given Saturday, June tenth and Sunday, June eleventh. Those wishing to tryout should report to beach patrol headquarters at 44th Street and the Promenade between 8:45 AM and 9:15 AM.
The Saturday morning segment will include a mile run on the Promenade and a half mile ocean swim with a rescue torpedo. The Saturday afternoon portion will consist of a personal interview for applicants who meet beach patrol qualification standards in the run and swim. Candidates still being considered after the interview will be timed in a 500 meter pool swim Sunday morning, June eleventh. The final element of testing will be a simulated surf rescue. This surf rescue will consist of a 220 yard run along the beach, a sprint through the surf, and a short 20 yard swim to a flag.
Note that prospective lifeguards must be at least sixteen years of age on test day. Sixteen and seventeen year old applicants must have their parent or guardian sign the application and mandatory release form before being allowed to tryout.
All applicants must submit an application, release form, and written medical clearance from their doctor before they are permiited to participate in the test for prospective lifeguards. Only the 2017 Sea Isle City Beach Patrol Physical Examination form will be accepted as medical clearance.
Although it is not required, a pretest interview with the beach patrol's recruiting officer, Lieutenant Mike Farley, is recommended to improve an individaul's chances of employment. Contact Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an in person or telephone interview.
