MeritBadge.Org offers Swimming Skills resources for
Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Ventures!
Dozens of video links show you how to do key skills.

Before a BSA group may engage in swimming activities of any kind, a minimum of one adult leader must complete Safe Swim Defense training, have a commitment card (No. 34243) with them, and agree to use the eight defenses in this plan.
Guide to Safe Scouting, II. Aquatics Safety

While your handbook is your primary resource, the links below can help you learn your Swimming Skills. See the Disclaimers.   Videos show you key skills.
