Varisty Scout Coaches and Assistant Coaches
It is recommended that every adult associated with the unit should attend this course.
- For LDS units, that would include Bishoprics, Young Men’s Presidencies, Committee Members, Scout Leaders, parents, and any others interested.
- For non-LDS or individuals interested in the program (though not currently affiliated with a unit), you are more than welcome to join the discussion about how to develop this valuable part of the BSA program!
- Open to all Scouters, Leaders, and those interested, not just members of Tres Ranchos District!
