Waiting List Policy
Different Sections have maximum numbers, which are:
Joey Scouts – 20;
Cub Scouts – 24,
Scouts – Unlimited but dependent on Leader-Scout Ratio.
When demand for places exceeds these limits, a waiting list system becomes operational.
All prospective Joeys, Cubs and Scouts will be placed on a Waiting List for membership when the limits for that section have been reached. Preference for places will be offered on the following basis:
1st : Children of adults who are prepared to undertake leadership roles in that Section including committing to the Basic Leadership Training courses.
2nd : Children of adults who are prepared to undertake leadership roles in other sections including committing to the Basic Leadership Training courses.
3rd : Children of adults who commit to a two year term of office on the Group Committee.
4th : Siblings of existing members of the Group.
5th : The oldest of the members on the waiting list from the start, then those listed for the longest.
Please note that participation as a leader at 1st North Sydney will not only ensure your child a place in our Group, but will also allow it to remain operational – Leadership roles are extremely rewarding and fun.
