  4. Bring a pair of light weight pants and a short sleeve shirt for the test.
  5. Make a $10.00 payment to cover pool entry and all associated costs of performing the test. This entitles you to one attempt only. Further assessment attempts will require payment of an additional fee.


Appointment times are Monday to Friday 1:45pm for 2:00pm start. If you cannot make this time slot, please contact our swim school supervisor to arrange another time.
