Uniforms help to identify the participants to both our department as well as the public. Traditionally, the uniform also serves as a sense of pride to the participants.  

All Junior Lifeguards (Groms, Junior Lifeguards, and Elite Junior Lifeguards) must be in uniform each day to participate in the program. The required uniform is a plain red bathing suit (trunks for boys, one-piece or two-piece for girls) and the white program t-shirt. 

All that is required is the white t-shirt and the red swimsuit. We do however recommend (and have these available for sale) the rash guard, a hat, and a bag to carry them in. There is a lot of sun exposure in the course of our program and we do have sunscreen available on the beach everyday.

Please make sure all your children's items are labeled with their name as well, as we do have some lost & found items each year at the end of the sessions.

All sales are by appointment only through our Junior Lifeguard Store, which is located in the same mobile trailer as the Office at Fletcher Cove (111 S. Sierra Avenue).  You will receive an email with a link to schedule an appointment when we begin selling uniforms.

Please note: We do not sell uniforms on the first day of the program.



The uniform T-shirt is included in the cost of the program.

Remember that when in uniform, the public identifies you as a Solana Beach Junior Lifeguard. Please act accordingly.
