Awarded to a Scout or Venturer upon completion of BSA Paddleboarding requirements. Certificate states that recipient has "successfully completed the requirements and is hereby trained in STAND UP PADDLEBOARDING, BSA."
Stand Up Paddleboarding has been approved as a new aquatics award. Similar to Kayaking BSA, the award has requirements that introduce a Scout to the sport, and can easily be earned at summer camp or on a troop outing. This award will encourage Scouts to develop paddling skills that promote fitness and safe aquatics recreation.
Only those who have successfully completed the BSA swimmer test in the current year may participate in stand up paddling.
