We are getting ready for another great summer here at Castaic Lake. The program sessions are almost here! I want to go over a few things that will help with this year's process of Tryouts (only for new JGs or if you missed last year’s program), Application, Uniform Handout, and Permission Slips
TRYOUTS: (Only for new JGs or returning JGs that missed the 2018 Summer Sessions must tryout)

The Tryout will consist of: 100 yard swim under 2:30 minutes, 3 minute tread water, and a 10 yard underwater swim.
We have a max. of 200 Jr. Lifeguards per session again this year and we will fill up very fast so please make sure you take the time to do the Application correctly. Full Payment or Completed Financial Assistance Form with all tax documents must be turned in at the same time of application.
ONLY RETURNING JGS from last summer –2018 and *SIBLINGS of that JG
*Siblings will still have to tryout and must pass the tryout to complete the Application.
Please fill out the Application just like last year, then print out. Starting April 28th, 2019 8am at the Main Park Office (STATION 1) at Castaic Lake you will be able to turn in your application. This is the building when you first come into the park. Not the Jr. Lifeguard Building (BISC). NO MAIL IN APPLICATIONS WILL BE EXCEPTED THIS YEAR- ALL mail in Apps will be returned to sender.
NEW JGs and JGs that missed the 2018 summer.
Please fill out the Application, print out and bring with you to the TRYOUTs. You must complete and PASS the entire tryout for your application to be accepted. NO registration can happen until the Tryout is passed. You will be given a certification showing that you have passed the Tryout. This certificate must be included with the Application for it to be accepted.
ALL NEW JGS must show Proof of age before applications are accepted. Please show your Birth Certificate to County Personnel when turning in your Application at Castaic Lake. The Birth Certificate will only be used to verify age. (MUST HAVE ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE – NO COPIES)
