Program Description:
The Harvey Cedars Beach Patrol Lifeguard In Training Program, which began in 2001 with 20 eager participants, has successfully trained over 100 students each summer in the skills of water safety.

Our program stresses overall physical fitness, water safety skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, positive self-esteem & good listening skills. In an educational yet fun environment, the L.I.T.’s learn how to successfully use much of the same equipment that the professional lifeguards use for training & rescues.  The L.I.T.’s are trained & supervised by professional lifeguards; many of them have been Harvey Cedars Lifeguards for many years.
While competitions are not our primary focus, many of the L.I.T.’s can’t wait for the opportunity to test their skills against their L.I.T. counterparts.  The Harvey Cedars L.I.T.’s will compete in many local L.I.T. tournaments.  Each summer there are L.I.T. tournaments held in Harvey Cedars along with our neighboring towns.  Tournament entry fees are separate and is the responsibility of each student.
We strive to make it an enjoyable day at the beach for everyone!  We hope that all of our L.I.T.’s will stay with us and work as ocean lifeguards on our beaches at the Jersey Shore!
