"New" 2016 Rank Requirements now mandatory for all Scouts

Posted on Jan 11 2017 - 9:52pm

At the start of 2016 the BSA released updated rank requirements and provided a year long transition period.  That period is now over and all Scouts must use the new requirements.

For scouts with old handbooks (almost everyone in the troop who did't join this year) you can print out a new Rank Requirements Insert and staple or paperclip it in whole or just select pages into your handbook.  Once you have the new requirements insert you can work with older scouts or the Scoutmaster to transfer requirements you have completed into the new insert.

If you have any questions please contact the Scoutmaster.
