CLASS DESCRIPTION

The JG Prep Class is an opportunity for prospective new JGs to improve their swimming stroke and speed. The class is taught by LBJG Instructors. The goal is to swim 100 yards in under two minutes (or 100 meters in under 2:13.2). This is the time standard for entrance into the JG summer program. The safety of our JGs is our top priority, and we want all junior guards to feel strong and comfortable in the water. 

REMINDER: To be eligible for participation in the Prep Class, your child must have NOT participated in the LBJG program in the past AND meet the age requirements for the 2023 JG program (ages 9-17 as of July 1st, 2023)
