How to comply ? New G2SS, YPT and (gasp) females !! in Open Discussion - Program Posted August 21, 2018 I should have said "But are far as managing to live with the rules requiring that adults be registered" . . . . I'd rather stay out of the argument about ages and genders of required BSA adults. In my area, the GSUSA elementary age troops are typically rather small and single grade. (I suppose more like a den.) For a typical year we had 13 girls. Most of the moms were registered. 3 or 4 of the dads were registered. GSUSA distinguishes between leaders ("01s" and "02s", the "leader" and "assistant leader") who are encouraged to have training and other registered adults who need not take leader training. Depending on the type of event only one or perhaps two of the adults present need to be trained; the other adults required for the adult-to-kid ratio need only be registered and background checked. So, no male "leaders", but registered, background-checked dads who were available to help out when called on. My point was that it was not hard (in my experience) to get parents to register (and pay the registration fee, and do the background check) so as to be available to help. Getting them to turn in permission slips on time was a completely different matter.
