Troop Swim, Shrewsbury YMCA, February 11, 2009



At each swim Scouts are asked to take their swim test once again practice makes perfect. This assures us each Scout has nothing preventing them from swimming well, and allows us to identify areas of improvement. The older Scouts who have completed lifesaving and/or lifeguard usually conduct the swim tests.
Time is allotted for fun and for improvement. Some Scouts work on diving skills, other swim skills, and others rescue skills. There is no pressure to spend too much time working, and everyone has time for some games and fun with each other.
