SUMMER PROGRAM DETAILS

General Information

  • WHERE TO DROP OFF / PICK UP: JG drop off is located in the parking lot off of Claremont and Ocean Blvd. Your child's instructor will meet their group at the lot every day for drop off, and will accompany your child back to the lot at the end of every day for pick up. 

  • WHAT TO BRING: Everyday essentials include a backpack or duffel bag to carry your personal towel, sunscreen (lots of it!), water, and a snack. Make sure your JG comes prepared every day! We also recommend a hat, sun protection (red or navy rashguard is highly preferred), and sunglasses. If your JG is bringing their cell phone to the program, it must remain in their bag during throughout the session. 

Bike Safety

  • JGs who ride their bikes to the program are required to wear a helmet. Their helmet must be properly secured and buckled at all times while they are riding their bike.

  • Bike locks are also required, and it is recommended that JGs lock up their bikes individually, rather than in groups. There are bike racks located at the designated drop off/pick up location.

  • We recommend looking over and discussing these safety tips with your JG prior to the beginning of the program.

Uniform

  • Issued uniform for the program includes a JG t-shirt and boardshorts. If you want to purchase any additional gear, please see our online JG store

  • Junior Lifeguards are required to report daily in their issued uniform

  • The only acceptable outerwear is the Junior Lifeguard sweatshirt which can be purchased here.

  • Swimsuits: One or two-piece swimsuits worn during the program must provide full coverage of the chest and buttock. We recommend JOLYN for both one and two-piece styles. It is also highly preferred and recommended that the swimsuits be navy blue in color. For more on this, please see our FAQs page.

  • When a JG is in uniform, they are highly visible within the community and should act as proper, respectful representatives of the Marine Safety Division. 

Absences / Leaving Early

  • If your JG is going to be absent, please send an email to LBJG@longbeach.gov with the name of your child, age group (A, B, or C), their instructor's name, and the date(s) they will be absent. For safety reasons we need to make sure every child is accounted for. 

  • If your JG needs to be picked up early (ex: at 11:00am instead of noon), please coordinate ahead of time. Send an email to LBJG@longbeach.gov with the name of your child, age group (A, B, or C), their instructor's name, and the time/date they need to be picked up.
