Meet The Troop Leaders

The Scoutmaster is the adult responsible for working directly with the Scouts providing direction, coaching, and support. Basic roles include:

  1. providing the the junior leaders with the tools and skills so they can run the troop
  2. making sure the rules of the BSA and chartered partner are followed
  3. being a good mentor and positive role model

An assistant Scoutmaster is an adult leader over the age of 18 who helps the Scoutmaster deliver the promise of Scouting. Each assistant Scoutmaster is assigned specific program duties or fill in as necessary to assure the junior leaders have what they need to run things.
