Q: What is the Aquaplex swim test requirement?
A: The swim test requirement is in place to ensure that participating youth are strong enough swimmers to participate in various activities that the Aquaplex has to offer. The first part of the swim test consists of swimming 25 yards freestyle at the surface without stopping or touching the bottom of the pool. The second part of the test consists of treading water for 30 seconds.
Passing the swim test ensures that the child is a strong enough swimmer to use our inflatable obstacle course, basketball area, and diving boards. If a child does not pass the swim test they will be restricted to our family swim area which goes from 0ft-3ft deep.
