Swimming Badges - Red Cross Equivalencies

The Red Cross has changed its swimming program from a colour based naming system to a numbered one. This has caused some confusion for Leaders because the Cub and Scout Handbooks still refer to the old colour based naming system.

The following is a conversion table, so that you can easily convert between systems.

I hope this helps.
