This meeting will be a little bit different because we are doing a float test. This is REQUIRED for all participants. If you can't make this time, bring the float test form with you to the pool. The test can be administered by any Red Cross certified lifeguard. All City of Tempe pools and the SRC pool will supervise Float Tests for a nominal fee.
The test is done in deep water while wearing shorts and a shirt. You need to be able to float, tread water or swim in place for 10 minutes and be able to put on a PFD (life jacket) while in the water.
If you are interested in doing intercollegiate competition, there is one additional requirement for the swim test. Additionally, you need to do the above while wearing shoes (they can be water shoes) and be able to swim 50 yards
