College Scholarships

Each summer the Foundation awards college scholarships to deserving Laguna Beach Lifeguards to help them with furthering their education.  One of the scholarships each summer is coordinated through the  Laguna Beach High School Scholarship program.  The rest are done directly from the Foundation to the recipients. Below are the recipients from the past few years.

Competition

Ocean lifeguards train for, and participate in lifeguard competitions regionally, nationally and even internationally.  The competitions promote physical fitness, ocean rescue skills, camaraderie within the department, and a chance for the guards to interact in a positive way with their fellow lifeguards from other agencies.

The Foundation supports the competitors financially by purchasing racing equipment, and logistically by helping out during the actual competitions.  The Foundation has purchased three racing paddle boards, two racing surf skis, as well as a couple "easy ups" and additional racing gear.
