Swim Safety Rule for TriKids Races
• The swim test is on the honor system.
• Swimmers that have not passed the 2018 MCCS swim test must do so prior to the race, or they must wear a coast guard approved life jacket, for the swim portion of the race. We will have life jackets on hand if needed. 
• Swim tests can be taken at any MCCS pool.
• Current ODST members have already taken the 2018 swim test.
• Non-swimmers may still take part in the triathlon. They will wait at the swim finish, and then will be allowed to start running from the swim start to transition 10-seconds after the last swimmer has completed the swim portion of the race.
Swim Safety Rule for MiniKids Races
• Same as above, but an adult may swim with the triathlete. As long as the adult is within arm's reach, no life jacket is required.
