Blog | Cub End Of Term Swimming
05/04/2019 By David Faraday


The Cub Pack spent their last night of the winter term at Lewsley Park Swimming Pool. We had 15 Cubs, 2 Young Leaders, 1 Scout and 5 leaders attend. It was their fun session on the Friday Evening. After we all got in the pool and had some fun on the matts and the slide (I was the first one down it that night), it was time for some of the cubs to get to work on their swimming stage badges. We had 9 Cubs and 1 Scout that attacheved leavel one. 

Level One.



  1. Learn the general safety rules for swimming (such as not diving into shallow water or not swimming on your own) and where it is safe to swim locally.
  2. Show you know how to prepare for exercises such as taking part in a warm up.
  3. Demonstrate a controlled entry, without using the steps, into at least 1.5 metres of water.
  4. Swim 10 metres on your front.
  5. Tread water for 30 seconds in a vertical position.
  6. Using a buoyancy aid, float still in the water for 30 seconds.
  7. Demonstrate your ability to retrieve an object from chest-deep water.
  8. Perform a push and glide on both your front and back.
  9. Swim 25 metres without stopping.
  10. Take part in an organised swimming activity.


We then had 2 Cubs and 1 Scout that then went on to do their level 2.


A big well done to all that achieved a swimming badge.


This has got to be the first time that we have sent the Cubs home cleaner than when they arrived!!
