Steps 1, 2 and 3 are mandatory and require a 'pass'. However there is no time limit or set number of attempts, so athletes can complete the swim test in their own time and attempt the capsize drill as many times as they would like to.
When the athlete moves to the water it is in Hinksey Park on the boating lake which is 3ft average in depth. This means we do not ask athletes of any age to wear life jackets or buoyancy aids. However they may, if they wish. It is a Club requirement to reach a specific skill level before athletes move away from the Boating Lake.
