Deep Water Test

For safety reasons, each year all members/guests under 15 must pass the Deep Water Test to prove to Club Management that they can swim well enough to be permitted in water over their heads.


Swimmers using the slides, diving board and teen dock are in depths over 10 feet. Only members who have passed the Deep Water Test are permitted to use these features.


Typically, a member who is proficient in Advanced Beginner 1 is prepared to pass the Deep Water Test.


The Requirements:

  • The deep water test is given periodically throughout the day and will be announced over the public address system.
  • The test is administered in the swim lanes and requires the individual to swim freestyle two full lengths of lane in a horizontal body position and immediately followed with treading water (verified with a timer) without touching the side, without grabbing the lane line or ladder, and without the chin, mouth or nose going below the surface for one minute.
  • Individuals may repeat the test until they pass.
