Scout BSA units, also known as Troops, are not run the same as Cub Scout Packs. Scouts BSA Units are Youth Lead, that means the Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) is the primary leader from beginning to end and the Youth leaders verify the completion of the majority of the advancement requirements.

Scouts BSA Troops are also grouped different from Packs since a Troop is either All Female or All Male. There are no Co-Gendered Troops. When you search in the female troops will be identified as a Boy Troop or a Girl Troop.
