Swim Test:

The swim test is for ages 6-15 and will be used during both lap swim and recreational (open) swim times. The swim test consists of swimming 25 yards of the pool using either front crawl or breast strokes, treading water in the deep-end for one minute, then exiting the pool without assistance or use of the ladder. Swim tests are by appointment only.

Lap Swim:

All ages must be actively lap swimming when in the pool during lap swim hours. All swimmers must abide by basic lap swim protocols and be considerate of other swimmers. Lifeguards have final decision making authority on swimmers ability to lap swim.

Recreational Fitness and Family Open Swim:

The Elmendorf Fitness Pool is primarily a fitness and military training pool only. Open swim is available at Buckner Fitness Pool and the Polar Paradise Pool.
