Swim proficiency dates to be advised.  All nippers need to complete a swim proficiency if in the U8's or above.

If nippers are participating in swim classes or lessons either privately, through an accredited swim instructor, or they participate in a swim program with an accredited swim school - they can get the certificate completed during that session - they dont need to attend the pool proficiency as well.
