In order to receive a green wrist band, the swimmer must complete: 1. 25 yards of front crawl with rhythmic breathing (no doggie paddle) 2. 25 yards of back crawl 3. 30 seconds tread water 4. 30 seconds float on back
If the swimmer completes this test, they will be allowed in any of the 4 pools without a parent in the water with them although a parent is required to be in the spectator area or poolside benches.
If the swimmer cannot complete the test, a parent must be in the water within an arms-reach with the swimmer for their own safety.
OUTSIDE GROUP AND/OR PROGRAM SWIM TESTS
The Beede Center has one swim test day/time and it is each Saturday at 4:30pm. No advanced reservation required…a parent would sign a front desk waiver, pay the $20 fee, and then watch from a pool deck bench.
