The OCBP Chapter of USLA is a local non-profit, professional association of beach lifeguards and open water rescuers. USLA works to reduce the incidence of death and injury in the aquatic environment through public education, national lifeguard standards, training programs, promotion of high levels of lifeguard readiness and other means.
Every July, Swim Ocean City, hosts Ocean Games – a competitive open water 9-mile and 3-mile swim along the shoreline of Ocean City. The funds raised from this event support local charities and families as well as Johns Hopkins Brain and Stroke Rehabilitation Program.
