JG Prep Class

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. Swimming is an important part of lifeguarding and as such, swimming is also an important part of our junior lifeguard program. We want all our junior guards to feel comfortable and strong in the water. The safety of our JGs is our top priority. The prep class is an opportunity to cast a wider net for our JG program and bring more kids into the program who wouldn't otherwise be able to participate.
To be eligible for participation in the Prep Class, your child must have not participated in the Long Beach JG program in the past AND meet the age requirements for the 2019 JG program: Ages 9-17 as of July 1st, 2019.
For this year only, the JG Prep Class is being offered for FREE. Registration is required for staffing purposes and will be open on 1/1/19 at:
