WELCOME TO THE MONTEREY JUNIOR LIFEGUARD WEBSITE. We are looking forward to another amazing summer at the beach.   This year (2019) Junior Guards Session 1 will begin on June 10th and Session 2 will begin July 8th.  DUE TO TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES, Signups will now begin at 8am on Sunday, April 7th.  This will be done once again through the Reserve California system.  If you are not familiar with this new system please visit our website at and create a "parent profile" if you plan on signing your child up for Junior Guards this summer.  Creating a profile is the first step in the signup process and can be done at anytime.  Please refer to our 'Signup' link for further instructions in this process. We will have much more information coming soon, so please stay tuned.  We hope everyone is having a great start to the year and we look forward to seeing everyone out on the beach again this summer!
