Troop 175 Registration

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.

Deadline

2019 registration begins Tues., August 21 and ends Tues., Oct. 16, 2019.

If your forms/checks are late or incomplete on October 16, 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 16.

Youth Protection Training 2.0 (YPT 2.0)

All adult members of the Troop must complete the newly redesigned YPT (Youth Protection 2.0) course online by Oct. 1, 2018, even if your current YPT is not due to expire this year. An adult from every family must register with the Troop, which means you also have to do the YPT.

  • Take the online Youth Protection Training course: BSA Youth Protection 2.0
  • Submit the certificate with your registration paperwork.

Adults must have up-to-date YPT before they will be allowed to participate in Troop outings.

All Parents and Scouts in Troop 175 should submit:

  • Completed Troop 175 registration form. Please print legibly and fill out all the dollar areas even if you just put 0 or N/A.

See Donald Harvey, Becky Tragett or Denise Burfield to get a hard copy at a meeting.

Payment

If you would like to know your Scout’s account balance, please email Donald Harvey ([email protected]) or Troop treasurer Tammy Davis ([email protected]).

Questions?

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.

Need help with Costs?

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.
