Welcome to the Alliance 2019 Junior Guards Prep Program

For kids who don't swim competitively, the thought of passing the swim test for summer Jr. Lifeguard programs can seem daunting. Our staff of qualified swim instructors and lifeguards are here to help with two-week conditioning classes designed to improve your child's stroke and swim times. 

Please note that these classes are for swimmers who need help improving their conditioning. This class is not suitable for non-swimmers.

The sessions cost $70 and are two weeks long.

During the summer, classes are held Monday through Friday, 1-2pm, at Capistrano Valley High School. Please be sure to sign up below for the session(s) that fit your schedule, as there are no make-up classes. The last Friday of each session, participants will participate in the official OCJG swim test, which is included in your $70 fee.

For experienced swimmers who simply need to take the certification test, OCJG has authorized us to conduct official Junior Guard swim tests every Friday at 6:00PM. There is a $20 fee for those who wish to take the test only. Please note that swim test space on any given day is limited. Be sure register for your preferred date to confirm availability. 

(These are OCJG rules, not ours, and we can not bend, twist or break them.)

Swim Test Policy for Returning Students:

Returning OCJG students are exempt from the swim test requirement

Swim Test Policy for New Students:

All enrollees who are new to the program (have never participated in OCJGs) must pass a swim test that consists of

100 yards timed swim completed in 2:30 minutes or less
5 minutes continuous treading water without rest or reliance on floatation

New students must be registered on the OCJG customer account prior to taking the swim test so the results can be entered by the swim test proctor into our registration system. 
Once the student’s swim test results are entered into our system, the student will be eligible for online session enrollment.
