This coming Tuesday we will NOT meet at the church due to bazaar preparations. Instead –
What: We will be meeting at the Kennedy Shriver Aquatic Center for FUN, WATER SLIDE, and BSA Swim Test (test is only for the two who need it for the First Class rank requirement. If you have already passed it for the Troop it is not required).
When: Tuesday from 7-8:30 pm (April 10)
Where: Kennedy Shriver Aquatics Center - located at 5900 Executive Blvd, Rockville, MD 20852.
Bring: $5 admission, swim suit under street clothes, towel, goggles.
BSA Swim Test: Jump feet first into water over the head, level off, and begin swimming.
Swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes:
side, breast, trudgen, or crawl. Swim 25 yards using an easy, resting backstroke.
The 100 yards must be completed without stops and must include at least one sharp turn.
Rest by floating. Long enough to demonstrate ability to rest when exhausted.
This is only required once for the Troop to qualify for rank advancement and to qualify for our aquatic trips.
All BSA camps required everyone to take it every year upon camp arrival.
