Becoming an Instructor:
The Troop 16 Aquatics program requires a lot of help from adults and youth. Most are from troop 16 but we have a handful of other troops as well! If your interested in being an instructor we are always looking for help with our program! The requiremnents for helping are below.

Adult: Must be a registered member with the Boy Scouts of America!
Youth: Must be a registered member with the Boy Scouts of America and have completed Swimming and Lifesaving Merit Badge! Permission from your parents/guardians as well as a signed permission form!

If interested please E-mail Taylor Symensma with the Adult/Scout Name, Council Registered with, Troop #, phone number, & what Class they would like to help with and why. We will be in contact.


Instructors Information:
For the programs to operate smooth we need an average of 10-15 instructors per class! Any activity that cost money is covered by Troop 16! If the activity is at Perry Natatorium your need a swim suit and towel! All instructors have to sign up to receive text messages (instructions will be e-mailed and are separate texts then the class receives) and we will send out a text message to remind everyone of the classes. Instructors should always wear their survival bracelet for easy identification, which will be handed out during the beginning and collected at the end of each class.

All the dates, locations, times, & descriptions of the class are below. Instructor events are BROWN colored, pool classes are BLUE colored, & lecture classes are RED colored. If instructors make a majority of the classes they will be invited to the Wrap Up Meeting after Swimming and/or Lifesaving Merit Badge at CiCi's Pizza! If for some reason you are not able to come please let Taylor Symensma know as soon as possible by E-mail, Text, or Phone Call.
