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. 

To be COVID safe, 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). Store hours are Monday-Friday, 10:00 AM -1:30 PM. We no longer offer on-line purchases because many items were returned because of incorrect sizing. We do not offer refunds once the purchase is made.

Schedule an appointment

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

When wearing the uniform board shorts and/or T-shirt outside of program hours, we ask that Junior Lifeguards maintain the high standards (respect for authority, following guidelines, avoidance of foul language, general maturity) that are expected during program hours. Remember that when in uniform, the public identifies you as a Solana Beach Junior Lifeguard. Please act accordingly.
