A quick question, and perhaps some of the professional Scouters who
subscribe can provide the answer:
What about the liability for the unit, the Council and BSA? I heard we
had a problem a few years ago when liability rates for public school
athletic programs went through the roof and High School football teams
were being registered as Explorer Posts to take advantage of BSA's
insurance coverage. Is that a concern here, when a Post or Pack, becomes
a league participant as its sole or most significant program element?
Who's insurance program covers the liabilities when a Pack joins the
Little League? Are the leaders still protected under BSA's insurance
coverage if something goes terribly wrong?
