Lifeguarding for Monmouth County Park System

Our lifeguard program is challenging, and a high integrity ocean lifeguard operation.  Our standards and expectations are very high and as such we wish to employ those who are willing to work under our demanding guidelines.

Our organization emphasizes intensive training and conditioning.  Seven Presidents employs those who are enthusiastic about learning ocean rescue skills, first aid skills, and and maintaining high levels of personal fitness.

We are a small, but feisty and tough ocean lifeguard crew.  Since our training and hiring standards are very high, we are able to compete successfully against much larger lifeguard crews.  Our women lifeguards consistantly rank in the top two nationally at the annual All-Women's tounament.  Each day our crew engages in workouts - rain or shine, hot or cold, rough or calm.
