As the L.D.S. church implements Scouting all boys become a member of a
Varsity Team at age fourteen and Explorers at age 16. Therefore there
will not be a 15 or 16 year old SPL in an L.D.S. troop - since they will be
members of teams or posts.
No, they are not dual registered in a troop and team/post.
That's the way they do things...
