Ages 4 to 6 - 50 yd swim

Ages 7 to 10 - 100 yd swim

Ages 11+ - 200 yd swim

Swim: The swim will be the distances above, based on age group in Highland Park's 50-meter, 8 lane pool. Kids are allowed to use life jackets as needed. Family Swim School lifeguards and swim instructors will be present in the water to ensure safety. Highland Aquatic Lifeguards will remain around the perimeter of the pool throughout the swim. All racers will be given age-group color coordinated swim caps to be worn in the swim area. This makes our racers very visible so they are swimming with the correct age group, as well as provides a safety feature in the pool. 100 and 200 meter distances will swim from the shallow end to the deep end, ending in the shallow again. 50-meter swimmers will swim one length of the pool from deep to shallow end.
