Parents in Troop 202
Parents are welcome to participate in Troop 202!  There are a few basic rules.

If you are going to stay overnight with the troop, drive Scouts to an outing, or participate regularly in meetings, you need some basic training:
     Boy Scout Youth Protection Training (required every 2 years): 
     Diocese Protocol "Safe and Sacred" Training (required every 3 years): 
     BSA Driver Pledge (required only once): 

If you would like to register as a Merit Badge Counselor, contact Sara Gormley (Committee Chair).  The process is easy and there is one additional online orientation course you need to complete.  We need your help since we have a lot of Scouts who want to earn merit badges!

If you want to register as a Committee Member, you'll need to complete the position-specific training for that position before signing up.  A great way to start is by attending our Troop Committee meetings, which are open to all parents.  The majority of active adults in Troop 202 have completed the three required training courses listed above, but are not officially registered with BSA.

If you are interested in being an Assistant Scoutmaster, you must complete all required training for the position before signing up.  We also ask that you meet with Jay Dziwlik (Scoutmaster) to understand the troop philosophy and duties you'll be asked to support.

How can parents get involved?
- Come to troop meetings!
- Participate in boards of review for rank advancement (no registration needed).
- Attend Troop Committee meetings (usually the third Monday night of each month).
- Go on outings!
- Be prepared to work with the other adults in the "Old Goat" patrol.
- Support all boys in the troop, not just your own son!
