Returning Carlsbad Jr. Guards "DO NOT" need to retest.

If you are on a swim team, water polo team, please email us with your 100 time and we will waive your swim test. If you have been in another Junior Guard program with test requirements that are the same or faster we can waive your swim test as well. 

We are very strict on our time standards for safety reasons.  Please prepare your child before the test. Test them yourself before the swim test.

This is not a learn to swim program. 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.
