Please read ALL of this info. Registration is a big deal and takes a lot of time to coordinate, so please help us out by following the directions.
2020 registration begins Tues., Sept. 18, 2019 and ends Tues., Oct. 15, 2019 at the Court of Honor.
If your forms/checks are late or incomplete on October 15, you will need to go to Council directly to register your Scout with the troop. It’s a REAL pain so just get us your paperwork by October 15.
All adult members of the Troop must have YPT (Youth Protection Training) valid throughout calendar 2020 (i.e., expires January 1, 2021 or later). An adult from every family must register with the Troop, which means you also have to do the YPT.
Adults must have up-to-date YPT before they will be allowed to participate in Troop outings.
Background check authorization forms are required for all returning registered parents/adults. Adults registering with a new scout will require this next year, but the initial application authorizes the initial background check.
How to turn in your paperwork
All Parents and Scouts in Troop 175 should submit:
New Parents and Scouts should also submit:
Scouts and/or adults who have never registered with the Troop should provide all of the above items (except the background check authorization form) and:
See Donald Harvey, Becky Tragett or Denise Burfield to get a hard copy at a meeting.
If you have questions, please ask us at the Scout meetings. We’ll try to attend as many meetings as possible, and we’re more than willing to sit with you and go over forms.
We don’t want financial considerations to keep a boy from participating in Scouts. The Troop 175 Fallen Eagle fund will help Scouts with registration costs if their families are going through a rough time. Your son can also earn money for his Scout account by selling popcorn. If you’re considering leaving Scouts for financial reasons, or if you know someone who is not participating because of registration costs, etc., please contact Kevin Wyatt. Scouting is a great program and we don’t want anyone to miss out on its benefits because they can’t afford the cost.
