Registration

All youth and adults in your Scouting unit must be registered with the BSA. The great news is that you can now manage your unit's registrations (both adults and youth) from the my.scouting.org website - and it is all paperless!

Read all of the easy step-by-step instructions on the website below.


Get educated! (Trained)

The Boy Scouts of America offers training both online and in classroom settings. These training courses are built to help your leaders be successful - which means a better experience for our youth. 
 
As a unit leader, you are responsible to ensure all adults are trained and are providing the best program possible. The BSA provides a great tool for you to track adult training status - and even to provide updates of training completed for anyone in your unit. This tool is the my.scouting.org tool.
 
The unit Key-3 have rights to use this tool to manage the training status. What is a Key-3? Great question. Every unit has them, and they are:
  • Chartered Organization Representation (COR) - in LDS units, this is normally a member of the bishopric
  • Committee Chair - selected by the COR
  • Unit Leader - for Cub Scouts, this is the Cubmaster, for Boy Scouts, this is the Scoutmaster
As new adults are identified and registered with your unit, the Key-3 should help those adults do three things:

Tracking Everything Simply

From the first knot tied to final hours of service performed, the Scouting experience is a journey like no other. But there are some requirements in this for the adult leaders, such as tracking advancements, ensure proper records of service are recorded, communicating with parents and youth, and more. 

There are many methods that have been used over the years, including poster boards, spreadsheets, and software programs. The BSA recently released its own specialized software package that we recommend for use - Scoutbook. Scoutbook ensures not a moment is missed and that everything is easily and quickly managed and synchronized with the official BSA records system. It is also a great tool for parents and Scouts, allowing them to stay informed and connected.

Have Fun, Stay Safe

Safe Scouting is a major key to every successful activity. What should be fun can lead to accidents, injuries, or event death if we don't follow safe practices and common sense in all we do. Whether enjoying outings, swimming, high adventures, or other activities, we must recognize the dangers of weather, transportation, terrain, carelessness, and our surroundings.

Below is a list of resources to help you do Scouting safely and deal with emergencies!
