IMPORTANT: Registration by phone or online closes the Thursday prior to a session’s first day. There must be at least 7 Junior Lifeguard participants for a program to run at a facility. If this minimum is not met, the program will be CANCELLED. Parents and guardians will be notified the Friday prior to the session’s first day. Full refunds will be given if the session is cancelled. To avoid this, please register early online or by phone.
Junior Lifeguards who do not attend the first day will dropped or lose his/her spot. There will be no refund for no-shows unless they contact Reservations or leave a message at the program facility. For a full refund or credit toward another program, at least 5 business days advance notice is necessary. Failure to notify the Reservations Office at least 5 business days in advance of your cancellation will result in forfeiture of the program fee. The Reservations Office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30am-4pm.

If your child is picked up after 4:31pm a $10 administration fee and $5 late fee starts. Another $5 fee is added for every five minutes thereafter. Credit card payment is due when you pick up your child. Your child will not be accepted into the next day’s program until the late fee is paid. No exceptions. If you have not called the lifeguard station for your child’s program to notify staff that you are running late, we will contact the EBRPD police department at 4:45pm to assist us. For JGs in extended care, the late fee will be applied at 5:01.
Optional- American Red Cross certification: $20

What to bring:
Participants are responsible for providing their own snacks and lunch. Lunch time is monitored by instructors from noon - 1 pm. Participants are encouraged to bring multiple towels, sunscreen, sun protection, and a set of sweats for cold days.
Pick-up and Drop-off:
JGs can be dropped off 30 minutes before the program begins (between 8:30-9am). JGs can be picked up to 30 minutes after the program ends (between 4-4:30pm). Parents are responsible for arranging the prompt pick-up of participants during the pick-up times listed above. Parents will be charged a late pick-up fee at 4:31pm. Our first priority is your child’s safety; therefore, parents must sign-out their JG with an instructor at the end of each day. JGs may not leave the program area without an adult. Alternatively, parents may select the “Walk” option from the waiver submitted on their child’s first day of participation. This allows their child to leave the program area (and instructor supervision) at 4:00pm.
