All NEW students (including JGrommets) must attend a tryout in order to participate in the program. Returning students do not need to attend a tryout unless it has been more than two years since their last participation.
Prior to attending a tryout, new students must register and submit payment during the online registration process. However, the swimming requirements must be met in order to be accepted into the Program. Students can attend as many tryouts as needed to pass the swim test. We strongly recommend regular swim workouts before attending a tryout. If you have any questions regarding tryouts and the swim test, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tryout information for intern candidates is available on the Intern Program web page.

|JGrommets||7 - 8||50 yards||No time limit|
