What do the different tests represent?
The first test shows us that the child is a strong enough swimmer for our program, the second test shows us that the child is comfortable enough to swim under waves, the last test shows us that the participant knows how to stay afloat for an extended amount of time.
Children that have already passed our swim test in the past do not need to re-test.
