Troop Committee Mom wrote:Several scouts in our troop are also athletes who have weekend sports commitments (generally Friday night or Saturday morning games). These scouts would also like to serve as leaders in the troop - SPL, ASPL, PL, etc. - but have been told that they must forgo their weekend commitment to their sports team if there is a conflict with a scouting event. If they are unwilling to do this, they should not run for these positions. The scouts would like to be free to keep their commitments to both their troop and their team by dividing the weekend between the two activities (honoring their commitment to both) when possible. Unfortunately, our troop's leadership term is October-March and April-September and interferes with both fall and spring sports schedules. How do other troops handle this issue? Can scouts in leadership positions also be weekend athletes? Thanks in advance for your time and input.
