Test, Mark, Protect- Swim Testing & Wristband System

All swimmers ages 14 and younger are required to take a swim evaluation test which will be administered daily by WWFY staff.
Swimmers are evaluated on their current swimming abilities regardless of whether the swimmer may have taken a swim test in a previous season.
Swim bracelets are distributed to swimmers ages 3-14 based on current swimming ability (not age) and must be worn at all times.
• Swimmers who decline to take the Swim Evaluation must wear a red bracelet, which limits them to the shallow end of the pool.
• Swimmers can retake the Swim Evaluation only once each week. All decisions regarding Swim Evaluation are at the discretion of the WWFY management and are not subject to question. Swim Evaluation results will kept on file electronically.
