Posted on Jun 21 2018 - 11:56pm

Attention all Troop and Crew scouts and adults:

New - print and sign waiver to speed up pool check in process!

Sunday is our  Troop and Crew-wide annual BSA Swimmer Classification test given by a Council-approved administrator.   All members must complete this classification annually in order to participate in aquatic activities..

Register: https://www.troop777northville.org/node/3125


Where: Schoolcraft College Physical Education Bldg Pool (in back across from tennis courts)  Enter via locker rooms.

When: Sunday, June 24th Tests continuously administered between 5pm to 7pm (stay only as long as it takes to pass test).

Why:  Required to participate in any BSA Aquatics activity – think summer camp, canoe/kayak trek, troop swimming night, Jamboree waterfront, any high adventure with water.

What: Swim 75 yard front stroke and 25 back stroke and 1 minute floating.

Who:  All Crew and Troop Scouts and Scouters.  (note: 777 and 755 are doing this at the same time)

Cost: Free.  Bill Phillips (Council approved administrator) and a Schoolcraft Lifeguard are volunteering their time

Forms:  Parents will need to sign a Schoolcraft liability waiver at the pool in order to enter the water.  The troop will file the appropriate BSA Swimmer Classification form.


SEA BASE note:  Sea Base Crews – you do not need to retake this test.  You are good to go until June next year.

SUMMER CAMP note:  It is highly recommended you get certified on Sunday instead of waiting to do so at summer camp; it takes away from “fun” time.  However, if you miss Sunday, you will be able to get classified at camp.

1st and 2nd CLASS SWIM PROGRAM Participant note:  Bill Phillips requires his students to attend Sunday to take the official BSA Swimmer Certification. His class met rank requirements and prepares scout for the classification test.

New Youth Protection Training and Guidelines - Retraining Required by October 1, 2018

Please log into https://my.scouting.org to take the new YPT. 

  • Save the completion certificate and email to Anne Felosak. 
  • If you are a BSA registered adult, verify that your BSA ID is in your My Scouting profile 

While we are compliant with current training requirements, we need your help in preparing for October - Crew is 60% completed / Troop is 18% completed with new training.

The new Policies Include:

  • By October 1, 2018, all new and currently registered leaders will be required to complete the updated training
  • Adults accompanying units on activities who are present at the activity for 72 hours or more, must also take Youth Protection Training. The 72 hours need not be consecutive.
  • New leaders are required to take Youth Protection Training prior to completing the registration process.
  • Units cannot re-charter unless all unit leaders have completed YPT within two years.
  • Adult Youth Protection Training is required for adult program participants 18 years or older. Adult program participants (Venturing, Order of the Arrow, Exploring) must complete adult Youth Protection Training before submitting their adult application.
  • BSA policy that when tenting, youth must be NOT more than 2 years apart in age unless relatives.
  • BSA policy that no one (youth or adult) may share an accommodation (tent) with a member of the opposite sex other than their spouse.
  • BSA policy that “buddies” must be NOT more than 2 years apart in age and the same level of maturity.
The enhanced and updated content will allow leaders and councils to comply with all current legal requirements. While this may be inconvenient for some, it reflects the BSA’s commitment to the safety of all youth.
