New Swim Test (for deep end privileges)

The swim test has been expanded to ensure that swimmers have the endurance and skill needed to swim safely in the deep end.

  • This test is administered at the lifeguard’s discretion, regardless of age.
  • Deep end privileges may be revoked if you appear to have difficulty in the deep end (even after successfully passing the test).
  • The swim test will not be administered during busy times.
  • There is no pushing off the wall, stopping at either end of the pool to catch your breath, nor any breaks between laps.
  • The new test is:
    • 100 feet of freestyle/crawl (4 laps- back and forth twice)
    • 100 feet of backstroke (4 laps- back and forth twice)
    • 60 seconds of treading water
