We have some new developments that we would like to update you on.
* We have a NEW enrollment process.
In previous years, we have used a third party program (Active) to enroll which we will no longer be using. CA State Parks has created a program that is used for enrollment in any activity in the State, including Jr. Lifeguard programs. The name of this program is known as Reserve California.
We will have specific directions on how to enroll that will be posted in a designated "Enrollment" tab on our website once we have them available. It will posted prior to the opening of enrollment.
A few key things to keep in mind for our new enrollment process:
1.) Enrollment will open April 2019.
2.) You will need to create a User profile to log-in and continue with enrollment.
3.) A new statewide mandate has eliminated our sibling discount. This will not be available in the application.
* Uniform Sales
We have upgraded our technical capabilities in the uniform sales process. We now accept credit cards, as well as cash and check.
We plan to offer more uniform sale dates/times, besides the standard sales on designated tryout dates. We will post these dates soon.
