Navy Youth Swim Test
The Navy Youth swim test is required for all pool users under the age of 17. This program identifies swimmers and non-swimmers within the facility creating a safer pool for everyone.
Non-swimmers are any youth who cannot or chooses not to pass the Navy Youth Swim Test.
Non-swimmers under the age of 17 are not permitted to use the Bremerton Aquatic Training Facility.
Swimmers are considered those youth under the age of 17 who can demonstrate the following minimum requirements:
- Swim one length of the pool (25 meters) unassisted and without rest.
- Swimmers must use a recognizable front stroke (front crawl stroke of breaststroke) for the entire distance demonstrating rhythmic breathing.
- Jump into the deep end, fully submerge and resurface without assistance.
- Tread water for 60 seconds, keeping their ears out of the water.
- Exit the pool on their own.
Once a youth has demonstrated they can perform the minimum standards they will be issued a Navy Youth Swim License which is valid for the remainder of the current calendar year.
Any lifeguard on duty can require youth to retake the Navy Youth Swim Test if they are uncomfortable with a child's swimming abilities.
The swim license must be shown upon entering the Aquatics training facility in order to gain access to the pool.
Children between the ages of 10-17 may use the facility without a parent ONLY if they have a Navy Youth Swim License.
