Health Form - If you have not yet updated your health form (Part A & B) - it needs to be on file for you to do a swim test!
Scouts who would like to do swimming or boating activities during the year need to pass the BSA Swim Test
There will be an opportunity to do the swim test at Summer Camp, but it is much preferred to take care of this early
The swim test to be a "Swimmer" involves the following; Jump in Feet first into deep water; Surface & Swim 3 laps of a 25 yard pool using any stroke you want; Swim a 4th lap using a resting back stroke; Show that you can float on your back
The swim test to be a "Beginner" involves jumping in feet first into deep water, swimming 25 feet one direction and then swimming 25 feet back. (About one lap)
After scouts finish the swim test they will be able to work on a few aquatic rank requirements and maybe play around in the small pool if time allows
