sportsballsScouts and Sports together make a balanced diet of activities! Scouting is flexible enough for a Scout to excel at both, and many Scouts do. Scouting encourages a well-rounded balance of activities, and a Scout doesn’t have to attend every Scouting event.  No one should have to feel that it is "Scouts verus Sports" situation.
Troop 145 supports its Scout players in various sports thoughout the seasons!  As Troop 145 starts a new Scout Year and should a Scout be unavailable for Monday meetings or other activities,  please stay in communication with your Patrol Leaders and Scoutmaster so we can all be your "cheering section"  in Sport AND in Scouting!  As always, we look forward to your attendance to any of the planned troop activities!
