Aquatics


Greetings Aquatics Enthusiasts!

We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy during our current coronavirus-induced restricted activity period.  Although we do not know when the social distancing restrictions will be lifted, we want to be prepared and are still moving ahead with planning this year's Day on the Water event which will be held at the Lake Washington Sailing Club on Saturday, June 6, 2020.  As with all Scouting activities, we need your support to make the event a success.  Lifeguards, lookouts, instructors, and general support staff are just a few of the spots where you could volunteer.  Please contact Phil Allen at p.allen5040@sbcglobal.net or Robert Sherry at robertdsherry@gmail.com if you can help.  Registration for the event is open on the GEC website.  Thank you.

Please check back frequently for updates on event status.

 

Upcoming Events:

  • Any scout needing a swim test certification may take the swim test and get certified at the Sacramento Central YMCA at 2021 W Street, Sacramento (map).  The cost is five dollars and the test will be administered by a YMCA lifeguard during open swim time. Contact Ali Amundson at the YMCA at aamundson@ymcasuperiorcal.org or call the YMCA at (916) 452-9622.

  • National Camp School Aquatics Instructor training.  The GEC still needs trained aquatics instructors so that we can grow our program and comply with BSA national requirements. 

  • Our next meeting will be a Zoom meeting and will be held on Wednesday, April 22, 2020, at 6:30 PM.  If you are interested in attending, please send an email to Phil Allen, p.allen5040@sbcglobal.net, and you will be sent an invitation.
