Swim Test

Returning Carlsbad Jr. Guards "DO NOT" need to retest. If you are on a swim team or water polo team. Please contact us and we can waive your swim test.

We are very strict on our time standards for safety reasons. You may only retest that day. Please prepare your child before the test!!! Test them yourself before the swim test.

We swim twice as far in the ocean. The better swimmer your child is, the more fun they will have at Junior Guards.

If you do not pass you will be issued a refund.
