Varsity Scout Leaders Day Book Day 6: The Meeting

Day 6The Task:
Start to plan for the first team meeting.

If the next team meeting hasn’t already been planned, then it would be a good idea to look ahead now and plan. The team meeting outline and checklist below will make the planning job easier.

Remember to rely on the judgment and choices of the young men as much as possible. A good Coach does not try to play the game for the team, he simply teaches them the skills of their positions and then gives them feedback and encouragement and opportunities to practice.

What you need now is a basic plan, no frills. As you gain experience and get ideas from others, the meeting will become more organized. However, if nothing is planned there are 48 months of suggested Blue Square program in Program Features for Troops, Teams and Crews. (We have one posted on first aid here)
