Helpful videos

I use these Early Rank Requirements video clips as a "Virtual Troop Guide" for my EYOS patrol.  It's kids teaching kids.  It works pretty well, especially for younger guys, but maybe your older guys need a refresher. This works for that, too.

Click the link above, then the appropriate rank badge, and select the clips you need.  Some requirement numbers don't match up with the current Handbook, the videos are a little older. (BSA site, requires free Quicktime player - add this to your favorites).

YouTube is, of course, full of good information, and some real crap too, so use wisely. But you can find swimming instruction (side stroke, breast stroke, trudgen, crawl (freestyle), elementary backstroke), how to make a shadow stick, and more!
