Step 3: Uniform Try-On!

Uniform try-on dates will be held in March after the NBJG swim tests. This allows you an opportunity to figure out what uniform sizes your JG will need. You will need this information for registration.

Step 4: Register & Pay!

Program registration and payment will begin once all three NBJG swim tests have been held. Your child must pass one of the NBJG swim tests in order to be able to register.

There are three waves of registration:

  • 03/29/17 - 04/10/17: Returning 2016 JG Families* (i.e. Families who participated in the program in 2016)
  • 04/13/17 - 04/25/17: New Newport Beach Resident Families
  • 04/19/17 - 04/25/17: New Non-Newport Beach Resident Families

*IMPORTANT: Returning 2016 JG Families must register within the Returning JG Registration window in order to secure their prior year's enrollment session. Families who do not register and pay within this timeframe, will have their status set to "new" and will no longer have guaranteed access to their prior year's session.
