    I've been spending countless hours trying to see if I find any recent information. So basically I was if they still offered remedial swim at boot camp? I've read that they did but the post was back around in '09 and then I read elsewhere they didn't but again that information is from 2015. I know I should be 100% prepared for BC and this is one thing I should be ready for since I'm joining a sea-serving service, honestly I thought I was at least okay but I went on vacation recently and went in water for the first time in years and I did badly swimming consistently from point A to point B.

    The thing is I live in NY and finding a pool + swim lessons around here (for a good price) is difficult. I've searched up YMCA and LA fitness but they're all out of my price range. 

    -My official question lol, are they still offering remidial swim at bc for FY 2018? (I'll be in boot camp feb/March if that helps in anyway).

    I recommend you call the YMCA and let them know you are joining the USCG and need some time in the pool! Ask them if they have any discount memberships for this purpose. My son did this and swam a few times a week.

    If you can't pass the swim test its my understanding you will be put in remedial swim. That will just add to your stress levels.

    Good luck.

    They did remedial swim as of this past May. But yes know how do either front crawl or breast stroke correctly and have decent endurance. I failed the swim because I got tired and couldn't maintain proper form for the whole swim. I will also tell you not to be afraid of remedial swim. I found it to be less stressful being away from my company and not being yelled at for a while. But I also knew I could pass remedial swim. So just know how to swim before you go and you will be fine.

    Alrighty awesome thank you both for your answers.
    I'll hit up YMCA and see if they have any discounts pertaining to me joining, so thank you m1ashooter for the suggestion.

    I'm not afraid of going to remedial swim so if I can't somehow get into the pool between now and bc I'll still try my 100% hardest but I'll be content with remedial.

    Once again thank you for answering my question and happy holidays!

    I left boot camp in May. The thing about remedial swim is you HAVE to pass the class with the breast stroke. You do the initial test however you want, but if you're put in remedial swim, that's how you pass out of the class.

    Also, it does get you away from your company, but you also have to get up earlier than them.
