Aquatics Swim Tests

Swim tests will be conducted by the lifeguard staff for all swimmers.   Upon successful completion of the swim test, the appropriate bracelet will be handed to the swimmer and their name recorded in a binder.  

Once your child has been issued a bracelet, they are required to wear it EVERY time they swim.  Please write your child’s name on the bracelet in permanent marker.  There will be a replacement fee for lost or forgotten bracelets.
