Result of 1st Class swimming problems from the list
Tue, 7 Sep 1999 22:55:44 -0500
Thank you to everyone on the list that responded, I will try to recap on
some: With over 40 responses almost all agreed that the boy should not
retake the requirement for 1st Class swimming. The troop committee should
wave the requirement. The young scout should still try to overcome his fear
and still work on swimming when possible. And the Life Guard at the pool
should be retrained!
Also about 22 responded that the BSA should rethink the new swimming
requirements for 1st Class as many scouts have been having serious problems
in completing them, properly.
