Swim Safety Rule for TriKids Races
" The swim test is on the honor system.

" Swim tests can be taken at any MCCS pool.
" Current ODST members have already taken the 2019 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.
