Each Mercy Crew participant must pass a basic swim test prior to getting onto the water in a boat. This is only required to be completed prior to the rower’s first season on the water.
The test can be completed at your convenience at the JCC of Rochester for a nominal fee of $10. The test can be completed during any Open Swim time. Simply print the form accessed by clicking on the button below. Hand the form to the lifeguard, complete the activities, and have the lifeguard sign off to verify the athlete’s completion of the swim test requirements. Return the form to one of the coaches upon successful completion of the Swim Test.
- Swim for 50 yards
- Tread water for 10 minutes
- Put on a life vest while in the water
- Assess overall swimming strength as poor, fair or good.
