Swim Test for Summer Camp Attendees:
Both scouts and parents can attend the Troop 99 BSA Swim Test at Manheim Township High School this Friday, 4/22 at 6:30PM. This will save a lot of time at camp if you have this done ahead of time. Please come in your swim suit (locker rooms are available to change, if needed) and be aware that the boy scouts are also planning to do swim tests and other aquatic activities for their rank, so we will have to wait our turn. We really appreciate them opening up this opportunity to us! See below for details on the swimmer’s tests:
SWIMMER’S TEST: Jump feet first into water over the head in depth, level off, and begin swimming. Swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes: sidestroke, breaststroke, trudgen, or crawl; then swim 25 yards using an easy resting backstroke. The 100 yards must be swum continuously and include at least one sharp turn. After completing the swim, rest by floating. BEGINNER’S TEST: Jump feet first into water over the head in depth, level off, swim 25 feet on the surface, stop, turn sharply, resume swimming as before, and return to starting place.
NOTE: If your scout does not pass either test, it doesn’t mean they won’t be allowed to participate in any water activities, but they will be required to wear life vests and/or may have restrictions on the area of the pool that they are allowed in, for their safety.
DON'T FORGET GOGGLES AND A TOWEL!
