Hard work

Level 3



The Swim Torrance JG Prep Program is designed by a Junior Guard Instructor, so it will prepare participants for the Los Angeles County JG pool swim test, as well as teach the skills needed on the beach. In 2019 and 2022 we had a very high pass rate after taking our course (no course in 2020 or 2021 due to COVID-19).

Over the course of the program, we have specifically created a season plan for your child to potentially pass the JG swim test coming this summer. Each swimmer will learn technical skills led by an experienced Swim Torrance Staff. This is not a learn to swim program.

Swimmers will also be conditioned to complete a 100-yard Freestyle (4 lengths) through consistent repetition and creative kick/drill sets. During the course, we will be tracking your athlete's progress with timed swims while continuing to give feedback. As your child gets closer to their test date, they will receive exclusive information to prepare the day of their test. We're so excited for you to join and let's get JG ready!
