Effective January 1, 2014
Every child under the age of 12 must take the swim test and be accompanied by an adult while in the pool area.
Children who pass the swim test will be issued a green band.
Children who do not pass or opt out of the swim test will be issued a red band.
Children who are wearing a red band must be within arm’s reach of a swimming adult at all times.

One minute of treading water. A swimmer’s head must stay above water for the whole time.

All of these test components must be completed at one time and in this order. Swimmers may attempt the swim test once per visit; all other attempts are at the lifeguards’ digression.
