Purpose of Note
The Scout Association’s rules for swimming are complicated. This note has been prepared to provide guidance to Northern Ireland Leaders on the permissible limits for swimming in a Northern Ireland context and in Northern Ireland waters only. Leaders are required to read Factsheet FS120620 Swimming and POR 9.48 to 9.52 in addition to this note.
Scout swimming is allowed in public swimming pools and beaches where adequate lifesaving cover is provided by the pool owner, or the local authority.
Leaders still need to manage their group.
