Swim tests

We require a Facility Swim Test run by a Lifeguard for anyone who is 12 years and under.

A Swim Test consists of:

  • Jumping into the pool
  • Swimming continuously for 15 meters
  • Treading water for one minute

Lifeguards run Swim Tests during open swim times. They will provide a red or green wristband to everyone who completes the Test. Individuals who are 13 years and older receive the regular admission bracelet.

Demonstrating your swimming skills

A lifeguard can ask you to demonstrate your swimming skills for safety reasons at any time. If there is any concern, the Head Guard or Assistant Lifeguard is there to assist.
