Swim Skills Questionnaire


CCI's Swim Skills Questionnaire is an important tool to help assess the swimming abilities and experiences of our students.
It is crucial that the questionnaire is answered honestly and accurately, so that we can best protect each student's safety when participating in water activities, either at the beach, on boats and when signing up for advanced courses, such as scuba and sailing.
Please note that a CCI Swimming Waiver and Consent Form must be completed for each student. It will be sent to you via Docusign link.
Students may also be submitted to a swim test before being permitted to participate in certain water activities.
