I've been know to miss a few things occasionally, but when did they put an
age restriction on Varsity Scouts. We've always been told that this is a
sports-oreinted program that runs parallel to the traditional Boy Scout
program. Not more challenging just for older boys, but a different program
for all boys.

Sort of, at least the way the program is designed, but at Venturing Leader
Basic we were told that the Chartering Organization can restrict unit
membership to a single sex, male or female.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
