Curious as to the ages of 'the troop that you are honored to be associated with' of the SPL and PLs.

 

Just curious.

SPL's 15 1/2, and a retread. Our ASPL's 14, and just did a term as a PL (darn good one, too). Our PLs (excluding NSP, they rotate every month) range from 11 1/2 to 14. Three PLs are retreads, the other two are rookies.

I don't think age matters as much as their rank and experience in the troop. And if the fellow troop members think enough of them to vote them in the position, then they should be given a chance and usually will do well.

 

By default though, our SPLs are usually the older scouts. And in our troop, the Adult counterparts are there to mentor the boy for their success. Like (SPL to SM), (Scribe to Advancement), (Quartermaster to Equipment Chair),etc

 

For us:

SPL - 16, Life

Assistant - 15, Star

Quartermaster - 14, Second Class

Scribe - 16, First Class

Troop Guides - 14-17, Star or above

Chaplian Aide - 15, first class (Yes, we even got on of those this election!)

Outing Coordinator - 14, Star

PL - 11-18, (depending on age of patrol, we form patrols according to age and when they come in together.)
