Lottery Policy (UPDATED)

Due to the high demand for our morning session, we have a strict policy for the selection of the morning group. Returning Junior Lifeguards are given priority registration if their registration packets are submitted by the deadline stated in the registration packet. All other JGs who would like to be in the morning session will be placed in a lottery to determine which session they will be in. The lottery will take place as soon as possible after the registration deadline, and families will be notified of their placement via mail.

For families who have multiple children in the lottery pool, the family will be entered in as one (1) lottery name rather than separate name entries for each individual child.  For example, the Smith Family has 2 children who will be participating in the 2021 JG program for the first time. One child is in the B group and the other is in the C group.  Both children will be placed in the lottery pool as one entry (i.e. Smith Family).  If the Smith Family is chosen for the  morning session then both children will be placed in morning session groups despite being in two different age groups.  If the Smith Family does not get selected for the morning session, both children will be placed in afternoon groups.
