Traditional Scouting for the 21st Century!


1. Swim 50 metres with clothes over swim wear (shirt, shorts and socks as a minimum) and undress in the water with feet off the bottom.

2. Swim 30 metres on breast and 30 metres on back (either with hands clasped or arms folded in front of body) and then a further 30 metres any style making 90 metres in all.

3. Dive from the surface of the water and recover, with both hands, an object from the bottom. Water not to be more than 2 metres deep.

4. Enter the water from the side of the pool using a straddle jump keeping the head out of the water.


Please check before attending your local baths as some of these activities may not be permitted during normal swimming time.
