Effective June 1, 2023
Anyone under 18 years of age must take and pass the DFMWR Water Proficiency Exam to swim in the deep areas or use the diving boards at any pool. Young swimmers will receive a “Proficiency Card” when they pass the exam. A wristband will be issued each day when they present the card at the pool. Please see the aquatics staff at each facility for more information and details.

Swimming Exam

1. Completely submerge by jumping or stepping into the water at least 7 ft. deep

2. Submerge and retrieve an object from the bottom of the pool

3. Tread water with your head, face, and ears out of the water for 1 minute.

4. Immediately swim 25 meters continuously using only either overhand crawl or breast. (No Combination) Swimmers may not float or swim on their backs during the exam.

Swimming technique will be evaluated based on the American Red Cross Learn to Swim: Level 3 stroke performance criteria. The exam can only be taken 1 time. We will re-evaluate swimmers every six months.

The exam is separate and distinct from the exam needed to use the water slide at Richardson Pool.
