What is it:
This Junior Leadership Training Course is for current, or soon to be leaders in your troop who are 14 and younger, with a minimum rank of Tenderfoot or above, any exceptions must be approved by the Course Director. All Scouts attending must be recommended by their Scoutmaster.

Participants are required to have completed I.L.S.T. (Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops) within their home Troop before attending S.E.A.L.S.

Participants will be shown how to apply and use leadership skills and Scout spirit effectively in a boy lead Troop in their specific leadership position. By the end of the course, each Scout will write a “contract,” which consists of a SMART goal that provides the participant with an opportunity to practice his newly-learned leadership skills to improve his home patrol or troop.

What can you expect:
Participants will be divided into patrols of eight members. A total of 48 spots are available so you will need to register early. Each patrol member will be provided with more information after registering.

Participants will have an opportunity to earn a S.E.A.L.S. strip that can be worn on their uniform after completing the contract.

If registration exceeds 48, a waiting list will be created. To accommodate as many Troops as possible, each Troop Scoutmaster can submit 2 youth for this course, as well as 2 alternates. If the course is not full two weeks before the course start date, then alternates will be used to fill the course.

Registration process:

1. The Scoutmaster recommends eligible Scouts that can attend the course either as "Primaries" or "Alternates." Then Scouts must be registered using one of the two options offered below.
2. Once the registration is confirmed, the Course Director will send a confirmation email to the Scoutmaster and parents.
3. No registration will be considered final until payment is received by the Council office. Scouts registered as "Alternates" will be notified if they can attend and only have to pay at that time.

Online Registration
The two Scouts recommended by the Scoutmaster per Troop may register below.  Payment is required upon registration.  Additionally, two alternates may also be preregistered.  Payment is not required until the registration is approved.   Please add each Scout individually to the shopping cart, then validate your order.
