For anyone who is not a member of a BSA program

You can still participate in the SCOUTStrong Navy SEAL Fitness Award Challenge.

For non-BSA members, earning the award consists of two elements:

  • Preparation: You must prepare individually or with a group of participants, using the online resources provided by the Navy SEAL/SWCC Scout Team. You are strongly encouraged to record your activities on an activity log, downloadable from the SCOUTStrong PALA Challenge website.
  • Assessments: Each participant must pass the Navy SEAL online assessment and meet the minimum requirements of the Navy SEAL Physical Screening Test (PST). First, contact the local Scout unit leader or BSA council office to see if fees apply. To pass the minimum requirements of the PST, you must do the following in consecutive order:
    1. A 500-yard breaststroke or sidestroke in 12 minutes, 30 seconds
    2. Rest—10 minutes
    3. 50 push-ups in 2 minutes
    4. Rest—2 minutes
    5. 50 sit-ups in 2 minutes
    6. Rest—2 minutes
    7. 10 dead-hang pull-ups in 2 minutes
    8. Rest—10 minutes
    9. A 1.5-mile run in 10 minutes, 30 seconds

Non-BSA members who successfully complete ALL of the requirements will receive a proof of completion certificate.
