Swim Tests at Chinquapin

Posted by rberlett on Apr 27 2024 - 7:00am
We have 2 sessions scheduled at Chinquapin Rec Center. The first will replace our Troop meeting on 4/30 at 7:00 PM. We have two lanes reserved and most Scouts should try to attend this.
The second on Weds 5/8 at 7:00 PM has only one lane reserved, and is available as a backup option.
There may be additional sessions later, depending on the number of tests that aren't completed.
As we get ready to go rafting in May and summer camps at Pipsico and Bechtel Summit in coming months, we all need to get swim certified (yes, including adults that will be participating in water-born activities). Here is a link to the Scouts BSA swimmer classifications and test requirements:
 
 
There are two swim tests scheduled for next week so that Scouts and adults can get certified. Please try to come to at least one so we don't have to schedule and pay for another session. 
 
Additionally, there should be an opportunity for Scouts to knock-out some 2nd and 1st Class advancements and Swimming merit badge requirements in the diving well. To accomplish this, new Scouts and those doing the merit badge will have swim testing priority so that they can move to advancement stations.
 
After tests and requirements, Scouts are typically able to use the pool recreationally

PLEASE FILL OUT YOUR NAME ON THESE FORMS FOR THE DATE YOU CAN TEST, BUT IT IS NOT REQUIRED TO TAKE THE TEST.
