Congratulations to the new JG's that passed the swim test for Session 1 and to the new assistants of 2014 who passed their interviews! It's going to be a great summer!

If you are hoping to buy uniforms the first day of session 1, June 9, or at the second Junior Guard tryout on June 22, please bring checks as we will NOT be accepting cash.



This summer, be a part of the action... Become a Monterey Junior Lifeguard!!!

The Monterey Junior Lifeguard Program is a 4-week educational and recreational summer program for children between the ages of 9 and 16. The kids are exposed to a carefully planned schedule of lectures and field trips, balanced with physical conditioning and ocean recreation activities. This unique aquatic class is taught by professional Ocean Lifeguards and several guest lecturers. There are 2 four-week sessions each summer at Monterey State Beach. 

Parents must enroll their child in the program before tryouts. If your child has done the program before, he/she doesn't need to tryout. 
If your child should fail, we will refund all of your money.
For more info, please read our Parent Handbook.
