Band Test

Testing, Requirements and Explanation
The Gloucester City Swim Club use “Bands” as a way to identify a club member’s or guest’s swimming ability. As a lifeguard, they use the band to make sure all swimmers are in the appropriate swimming area. We use the “Bands” to keep our members safe.
