Registration for Junior Guards will be through Reserve CA. 

  • Registration for Junior Guards Sessions is on a first come first served basis. If you are a new participant, you do not need to wait until after completing the swim test. (If you do not pass the swim test, you will be refunded in full). 
  • Registration for the Grom Program is based on tryout results, NOT a first come first served basis. After tryouts are held, those that passed the tryout will be able to register. 
  • Limited space is available for both regular JG sessions and Grom Sessions. Mark your calendars for registration opening day for the session you wish to enroll in (JG or Grom). 
  • If you need to cancel a registration, please email We will process the cancellation request. The following information is helpful to expedite the cancellation: Reserve CA Head of Household Name, Dependent (child) Name, Session registered for. 

If you have an account with Reserve CA and your child is a returning JG, you can click on the session links below to continue directly to registration.
