Participants are to swim a minimum of half an hour at least two times and at most five times per week during the challenge period. They will get 5 Swim Challenge points each time that they swim between 30 and 45 minutes and 10 Swim Challenge points each time that they swim more than 45 minutes. Swimmers should inform the lifeguard they are participating in the challenge each time that they come to the pool.
