A participant aged 9 and under may take a Swim Test consisting of:

  • 20-metre swim (or width of the pool if further) without touching the bottom
  • Ability to tread water for 30seconds

If successful the participant will be given a Green Wristband. The participant may swim in deep water. The participant must still be supervised in the facility.
