Aquatic Sports

The Boy Scouts of America outdoor program offers many exciting opportunities in aquatic sports.   Many troops participate in several aquatic programs each year including waterfront free swim, canoeing, whitewater rafting, motor boating and waterskiing.

The basic underlying participating requirement for all of these activities is that the Scout and Adult must have their swim ability level identified to your troop leadership to support the Safe Swim Defense / Safety Afloat programs.  Each troop should conduct a swim test at a local pool or at summer camp.  Each member of the troop is rated either a non-swimmer, a beginner, or a swimmer.  This official test result remains valid for one year, unless upgraded or downgraded by a BSA or Red Cross certified lifeguard.
