SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Though the 2020 Junior Lifeguard Program was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, San Clemente will again hold its City Lifeguard Position tryouts on Sunday, Feb. 21. The tryouts will be held at the Marine Safety Division Headquarters.
Candidates will compete in a series of swimming and running challenges, as well as an interview after successful completion of the physical portion of the tryouts. The top candidates overall will be invited to a training program scheduled from the end of March through April.
Applicants must be 16 years of age by June 7, with a valid work permit and signed parental consent if younger than 18.
Applicants can see hourly pay for the positions and can apply online at san-clemente.org/jobs or apply in person at the Marine Safety Division Headquarters.
The tryouts and training program will comply with COVID-19 safety measures, according to the city.
