Swim Test Requirement

All Grommet students (new and returning) must attend a tryout and pass the required swim test (50 yards in less than 1 minute, 30 seconds).


Grommet 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 given their Grommet rash guards on the first day of class and are required to wear them each day of the program. Tuition includes the cost of the rash guards; please remember to mark your child's name on their rash guard when they bring it home the first day. Grommets should wear proper swimming attire each day (one-piece swim suits recommended for girls; boardshorts or swim trunks recommended for boys) and shoes appropriate for the beach. If desired, SDJG uniform items can be purchased. Please note fins are not required for the Grommet program.
