The children can practice at Newport Shores clubhouse pool in Newport Beach, Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach, or Newport Harbor High Pool in Newport Beach. There are several dates and they are located at the Newport Harbor High School Pool in Newport Beach, California.

For the swim try outs, a child must be 9-15 years of age by June 23, 2008 (per the Newport Beach Lifeguards). And you must bring valid identification (for example a birth certificate or passport). Also, you must provide valid proof of Newport Beach residency (for example - car registration, driver's license, utility bill, or car registration). You need to provide three different items for proof of residency.

Each group is categorized A, B, C, D by their age. The swim consists of 100 yards (two complete laps - four lengths in a pool) and they must be completed in the following times. The following are the required swim times for each age group:

"A" (14-15 year old): 1:35 (one minute, 35 seconds)
"B" (12-13 year old): 1:40 (one minute, 40 seconds)
"C" (10-11 year old): 1:45 (one minute, 45 seconds)
"D" (9-10 year old): 1:55 (one minute, 55 seconds)

This test is conducted "rain or shine"
