JGrommets (7 and 8 year olds)

Introduction to Ocean Awareness

San Diego Junior Lifeguards will be offering an introduction to ocean awareness class for 7 and 8 year olds. The one-week class will focus on ocean safety, open water swimming techniques, and other ocean activities.

2016 Class Dates

Monday, August 22, thru Friday, August 26*

*Due to the calendar change by San Diego Unified School District and the new pre-Labor Day start date, this summer we will only be able to have one session of Grommets. We hope to have two Grommet sessions for 2017. Thank you for your support!

Morning (AM) Class Time:  9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Afternoon (PM) Class Time:  1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Cost:  $199 + Registration Fees. Tuition includes a JGrommet long sleeve rash guard and an official SDJG patch.


After registration, new JGrommet students will be required to complete a 50 yard swim in a swimming pool (no time limit) in order to be accepted into the Program.


JGrommet students are not required to purchase a uniform for the class. However, we do ask that all students wear appropriate swim gear and sun protection. Students will be issued a rash guard for use during the class. Issued rash guards must be turned in at the end of the week. If desired, SDJG uniform items can be purchased.
