Boy Scouts of America BSA Patch
Attention all Boy Scout Troops! Y-kiki Divers is pleased to offer the Scuba BSA program and patch.
SCUBA BSA introduces qualified Boy Scout, Venturing, and registered adult participants to the special skills, equipment, and safety precautions associated with scuba diving. The program encourages aquatic activities that promote fitness and recreation and provides a foundation for those who later will participate in more advanced underwater activity.
The Scuba BSA experience contains two parts: Knowledge Development and Water Skills Development. During the first part, participants learn basic dive safety information and overview skills, such as mask clearing, regulator clearing, and alternate air source use.
Completion of Scuba BSA requirements sets the stage for additional training, but does not qualify the participant to dive independently, either in confined water or open water environments. Scuba BSA is not a diver certification, it's an experience.
Individuals completing the SCUBA BSA requirements qualify for a recognition card and patch. The Y-kiki Divers PADI instructor(s) will complete the award applications for each troop member and the counselor or unit leader can then submit to the local council service center.
Y-kiki Divers will supply all scuba equipment: mask, snorkel, fins, tank, regulator, BCD, wetsuit, and weight belts.
Instruction & Equipment Use: $30 per person for groups of ten or less / $25 per person for groups of 10 or more.
Note: Participant(s) may provide their own pool at their expense provided it meets size and temperature requirements.
