Unfortunately (maybe fortunately - I am not sure) we did not make the rules of
what "active" means - BSA clearly states them. We have to be careful to not
change those rules (adding to or taking away from) or selecting which ones we
will abide by.
In the case of school athletics the coaches ae not volunteers - and the pressure
on them to put together a respectable team (often decided by the percentage of
wins to losses) is far greater than than the pressure put on a Scout Troop by
that same institution. While I see the point you are making, and maybe even tend
to agree with it, I do not believe we can compare the two school activities.
Just my humble opinion.
