Parents/guardians are encouraged to register their children at https://carpinteriaca.gov/parks-and-recreation/junior-lifeguards/, though staff will also be available at the pool to help with registration between 6 and 7 p.m. tonight. Those who register online or in person with a card will be charged a 3.25% debit/credit card processing fee. The City’s aquatics team expects to have ample space for interested registrants, though signing up promptly is encouraged in case the program or specific age groups reach capacity.
