Hey there Josh! As someone who wants to enlist and go CCT in the Air Force, would having a background in competitive swimming and track assist me in the training process?
I don’t know if the question makes sense, but I’ve been heavily considering CCT and I would like some input from someone who has experience.

Okay that’s a relief then. What times should I be shooting for swims? I understand a lot of the water conditioning is more than just doing laps and the like, however what would a good 500 time be if you can remember?
As it currently stands, my 500 is sitting at a 6:20 something, my 100 Free is 56 secs, and my 50 Free is 24-ish.

That's good to hear and thank you for responding. I'm about to graduate then attend community college for my Associates degree before joining. So that means I have a good 2 and a half years to go, but I just wanted to make sure I was in the ballpark and improve much more physically before I made the decision to enlist.
Thank you very much.

Damn lol, that does sound really good. I get how someone could be that “slow”, but it baffles me that some people aren’t good at swimming, and I have to remind myself sometimes that I’m always surrounded by swimmers haha.
Not trying to sound like an asshole or gatekeeper or anything, I just find it wierd that a 12min 500 is considered ok.

Well if they have to swim the CSS then the times makes sense, though they also wear fins according to my knowledge, which helps a ridiculous amount when swimming in my opinion.
