BSA Policy Requires:
For any and all Scouting activities. Each year ALL participants must complete a new Part A and Part B. “All participants” includes Scouts, parents, guardians, siblings, youth, staff, and unit leaders. Part C is only required for participation in events lasting longer than 72 hours (Camp Bartle), all BSA participants are encouraged to complete this Pre-Participation Physical during an annual physical performed by a medical professional.
Starting next week, October 6th, anyone not having a health form Part A and B on file will be sent home – whether from a regular Troop meeting, a camp out, or other scouting function where attendance is taken. You will not be given any attendance credit until your new Part A and B form has been turned in.
BSA insurance coverage for any scout function, requires that Troop 10 comply with BSA policy. Having a health form on file is clearly a BSA policy, knowingly permitting a scout’s to participate without one, is a policy violation that could void our BSA insurance coverage.
This is not a new policy and needs to be done every new Scouting year, August. Please take a few minutes and complete the forms for everyone who make take part in a Troop 10 meeting or activity. Return to Dr. Stark.
