Swim Test for New Novice

Swim Test Required for New Novices
Saturday, April 10, 12:45pm sharp at the BayView YMCA, Webster before Spring water practices 

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.

We will be arranging for the test to be administered as a group on an upcoming Sunday at the Bay View YMCA. Or the test can be completed during any Open Swim time which you can attend. 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.

The skills to be performed are:
  1. Swim for 50 yards
  2. Tread water for 10 minutes
  3. Put on a life vest while in the water
  4. Assess overall swimming strength as poor, fair or good.
Swim Tests will be conducted at:
Bay View YMCA
1209 Bay Road
Webster, NY 14580

(585) 671-8414

Please be sure to complete the Swim Test no later than Sunday, April 11, the beginning of the Spring 2021 Crew Season on water training.
