While Varsities may have been, at first, a mostly LDS phenomenon, that is
not necessarily the case any more. I know of several councils, outside of
predominantly LDS areas, that have many teams, and have adult leader
training courses for the Varsity leaders. In my council, we have several
teams, and the LDS charters vs non-LDS charters is 50-50.
My troop does not have an active Varsity program (it is an LDS troop). My
boys have chosen to use the Venture Crew concept instead. They also know
that if any boys wish to focus more on sports, the Team will go into place.
