Jedi & Ninja & Apprentice levels

Jedi / Ninja

A Jedi Polar Bear may ONLY wear a swimsuit, single hat and goggles / noseclips.

A Ninja Penguin may wear anything.

To qualify as a Jedi / Ninja you must enter the full Jedi / Ninja Challenge and swim at least 3000 metres each month to include 2 swims of at least 250 metres each in a single swim and also you have to complete all 10 of the specified full swims to get  20 points ( each individual specified swim only counts once ) - see below.

The 10 specified swims need to be done some time between November and March. The 3k per month can include any specified swims done that month.

Jedi Apprentice / Ninja Apprentice.

To qualify as an apprentice you must swim at least 3000 metres each month to include 2 swims of at least 250 metres each in a single swim and you also have to complete half of the Jedi / Ninja specified swims to achieve 10 points or more. ( each individual specified swim only counts once )

Each full Jedi / Ninja specified swim is worth 2 points so to be a full Jedi / Ninja you need to have entered the full challenge and achieve 20 points.

To qualify as an apprentice you can either enter as attempting the full Jedi / Ninja and drop down if you need to or enter directly as an apprentice.

The 10 specified swims and points value are -

Swim 1 - 1500 metres at 9.00 degrees or less - 2 points   or  750 metres at 9.00 degrees or less - 1 point

You can reach the required 10 points to qualify as an apprentice by any means but each specified swim only counts once.

E.g.

5 full distance swims = 10 points

6 half distance swims to get 6 points and 2 full distance swims to get 4 points = 10

each individual specified swim only counts once
