Any young man from 14 to 18 years old may participate in this program for
older Boy Scouts. Varsity Scouting offers five program fields of emphasis:
Advancement, High Adventure, Personal Development, Service, and Special Programs
and Events. Each of these programs is led by a member of the team called a
program manager, who receives assistance from a member of the team committee.
Position of responsibility requirements for Star and Life ranks may be met by
a Varsity Scout serving as a team captain, co-captain, program manager, squad
leader, or in other leadership roles assigned by the coach. The acceptable
positions of responsibility for the Eagle Scout rank are listed on the Eagle
Scout Rank Application.
The Varsity Scout Coach will conduct a Coach conference.
As the Varsity Scout meets requirements for each rank, a board of review is
conducted by the team committee member responsible for advancement, the
advancement program manager, and the Varsity Scout Coach for all ranks except
Eagle Scout. The Eagle Scout board of review follows the procedure established
for Boy Scouts and is described on this website.
