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 10 full swims worth 20 points - see below.

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 either by distance or by temperature or by a combination of both.

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.
