The Borough of Deal is now competing for the 3rd straight season in Monmouth County’s USLA Chapter of Competitive Junior Lifeguards. The team is open to anyone from any town, ages 6-17.
The Junior Lifeguarding team is a diverse group of kids and teenagers all looking to “wet their feet” in the world of lifeguarding. Instructed by dynamic coaches, including Deal beach lifeguards, team members learn the fundamentals of lifeguarding along with principles of physical fitness and important teamwork skills. Practices include a mixture of skill drills, fitness activities, and fun games to keep our team members motivated, engaged, and encouraged! If you have any questions about our program, please e-mail Amy & Gary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
