Silver Comet District Fall Indoor Leader training is Saturday, September 9th, at Burnt Hickory Baptist Church. Training includes all Cub Leader Positions, Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster, Den Chief, and Merit Badge Counselor Training. More information and registration can be found on our District website.

All units with 100% trained Leaders are eligible for a streamer to show off on their unit flag! Silver Comet has one Unit that is 100% Trained, and many more that only need a few of their Leaders trained to reach that special status. To find out who needs what Training in your Unit, any of your Unit Key 3 can log onto their my.scouting “Key 3 Tools” Training Manager and see that information.

If you have questions about your Unit's training or using the Unit Key 3 Tools, don't hesitate to contact the Silver Comet Training Chair!
