JBPHH Swim Challenge Series

In support of the Navy's mission for physical readiness and overall health, JBPHH Aquatics has created NEW Swim Challenge Series for 2018. The series incorporate the existing North Channel and the English Channel challenges and feature 3 NEW swim challenges which are inspired by Hawaii (Pailolo Channel, Au'au Channel and Kaiwi Channel).
Registration begins in February at Scott Pool.




Swim tests is required for any and all patrons ages 17 & under that wish to use pool attractions such as diving boards and slides, as well as use the deep end of the pool.

After completing the Navy Youth Swim test, swimmers will be given a wristband to signify their swimming ability while at the pool, and they will also be issued a new Navy Youth Swim License.

The swim test is as follows:

  1. Swim one pool length (minimum of 25 yards) unassisted without rest. Swimmers must use a recognizable swim stroke for the entire distance.
  2. Tread water for a minimum of 60 seconds.
  3. Jump into the deep end of the pool and return to the surface.
  4. Exit the pool unassisted.

**Swim tests are offered daily by lifeguards at times determined by local Aquatics program
**Swimmers are allowed to test only once per day
**The swim test is valid for ONE year. All swimmers must be reassessed every year.  Lifeguards may require additional testing for swimmers, if and when needed. The lifeguard has the authority to request assessment of child at any time.
**All swimmers who pass the deep water swim test will be awarded a Navy Youth Swim License.  All swimmers must show their license upon entering the aquatics facility and will receive a wristband to have full access to deep end, slides, and diving boards.
