Swim Tests



Swim Tests are verification of swimming ability for other organizations. You swim the amount specified by your boat club, boat class, or other organization, and we issue you a letter stating that you can swim. You do not need a swim test to join swim lessons.

Swim Tests are offered at 5:30 p.m. on weeknights and 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Other times are available by appointment. The cost is $15 per person.
