LBJG Tryouts generally take place from February to early May each year. Please check back soon for more information! Thank you!
The Long Beach Junior Lifeguard program requires all new prospective Junior Guards attend a tryout and pass the LBJG swim test BEFORE registering for the summer program. The swim test involves swimming 100 yards (4 laps) in less than 2 minutes - or 100 meters in less than 2 minutes and 13.2 seconds.
Returning Junior Guards do NOT have to complete the swim test. Returning Junior Guards are those who participated in the previous year's JG program (2022). JG's who take a year off are not considered returning, and must re-test.
This swim test is a safety standard, and there are no exceptions. If you think your child may need some extra help before attempting the swim test, we recommend looking into our FREE JG Prep Class (more information at this link).
