SWIM TEST INSTRUCTIONS: To get a swim test - simply go to either of our pools (when they are open) and let the lifeguard know you need a swim test for swim lessons.  This process takes about 5 minutes and doesn't cost anything.  You do not need an appointment.  Please click here for the current pool hours.
