C.L.E.A.R. Foundation to provide Jr. Lifeguard opportunities to Canyon Lake youth

The Canyon Lake Enrichment, Activities and Recreation (C.L.E.A.R.) Foundation will once again be partnering with the California State Parks at State Recreation Area Lake Perris to provide Jr. Lifeguard opportunities to Canyon Lake youth.

Last year, more than 40 Canyon Lake kids between the ages of eight and 15 participated in the program and learned valuable life-saving techniques, boating safety, water safety, and teamwork skills.

On April 15, C.L.E.A.R. will be partnering with the Canyon Lake Property Owners Association to host a free Stroke Clinic at the lodge pool from 7 to 10 a.m. This will be a first-come, first-served opportunity for potential Jr. Lifeguards to learn the strokes and skills, such as timed water treading, to make the cut at tryouts.

There will be two opportunities for kids to try out for Jr. Lifeguards. The first tryout will be held on Saturday, April 29, from 7 to 10 a.m. at the Canyon Lake lodge pool. The second tryout will be held on May 10 at the State Recreation Area Lake Perris. 

Participants will be required to swim 100 yards in under three minutes and tread water for two minutes. Scores will be recorded. Jr. Lifeguards is not swimming lessons, potential participants must be able to meet the California State Parks criteria. 

Kids who qualified at tryouts will receive an invitation to participate in the Jr. Lifeguards program from June 19 through June 30 at Lake Perris. The C.L.E.A.R. Foundation will be coordinating free bus transportation to Lake Perris for Canyon Lake kids.

Bus transportation to Lake Perris is sponsored by the City of Canyon Lake and will be first-come, first-served. A bus etiquette contract for the rider and proof of registration with ReserveCalifornia will be required.

In July, C.L.E.A.R. will be partnering with the Canyon Lake Water Ski Club and Wakeboard club to host an additional summer camp. Dates and times will be announced at a later date. C.L.E.A.R will also be hosting a July fundraiser.

The CLEAR Foundation is a nonprofit, philanthropic, charitable foundation geared at enriching the lives of Canyon Lake kids. The foundation was born out of a need for a hub to interface with the city, POA, water district, community clubs and groups, local businesses, and community members that want to contribute to a tax-exempt program that benefits Canyon Lake kids.

The goal of the CLEAR Foundation is to encourage healthy choices and good judgment through programs and recreational activities that promote conservation, lake stewardship, water safety, awareness, team building, and community involvement. For more information, email [email protected].
