Shooting Sports Winter Training

Have you ever wanted to be a Shooting instructor? There are training opportunities in the Denver Area Council this winter for Shooting Sports training. This training is good for Merit Badge Counselors, troop and crew instructors, youth camp staff and more.

There are several trainings going on this winter and the details can be found here.


Do You Want to Train?

There are opportunities to train right now! We are looking for individuals who can be part of the District Training committee. This committee has the important function of coordinating supervising and administrating the training all over the district.  Your packs, crews and troops deserve to have trained adults who can give them the very best that scouting has to offer and you can help. Don't worry if you don't know much about it, we can train you to succeed! For more information, please contact the training chairs; Harold PonserellaJohn Flanagan, and Roy Batzel.


Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader!

Training is what can make a bad leader good and a good leader great. Scouts need trained leaders in order to get the whole experience out of the program. Not only that but you would be suprised at what you are supposed to be doing and what your aren't supposed to be doing. The only way to know for sure is to take your training.

For positions in scouting there is a patch that goes on your shirt that says "Trained." In order to get that patch you must take certain trainings. The grand majority of positions and the required trainings in order to be considered fully trained are outlined below, but don't stop there! The more training you receive the better your program will be. Trainings such as BALOO Safe Swim, Trainer's Edge get you ready for your activities and advanced training such as Wood Badge and Powder Horn make you a powerful asset to your local unit as well as the scouting community in general.

To take trainings online you can go to myscouting.org. You can take Youth Protection there as well as many general courses and leader specific trainings.
