About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Sunday, December 12, 2021.

Bronze Star is designed to deliver high-performance training for skilled pre-teens. This first level of the Bronze Family is an excellent preparation tool for success in Bronze Medallion. Ability is the only pre-requisite, though Swim Patrol training is recommended. Participants develop problem solving and decision making skills as individuals and as members of a team. Successful participants receive the Bronze Star and Lifesaving CPR A awards. An endurance swim of 400 meters in 12 minutes is required for successful completion of this level.

Prerequisite: Red Cross Swim Kids - Level 10
