 Swim Tests

This page includes information relating to swim testing. 

Matters arising to be directed to the Rowing Sabbatical Officer.

Testing

At present the test consists of (in general terms):

  • Wearing a t-shirt and shorts (as a minimum)
  • 45m swimming (any stroke)
  • Surface dive for 5m. You must have your full body submerged for the full length.
  • Tread water for 2minutes. When treading water you are expected to have your full head above the water and have your airwaves open.

This is in-line with the requirements of British Rowing and all have real-world practical reasons for their inclusion. All testing is carried out by qualified personnel.
