Field/Class A Uniform

Mission Statement per BSA Scout Training:

The Uniform makes the Scout Troop visible as a force of good, creates a positive youth image in the community and gives boys a sense of belonging.

A complete Official Scout Field Uniform (formerly Class A), including official BSA pants or shorts, is expected to be worn at:

- Scoutmaster Conferences for ranks of Star and above
- Boards of Review for the ranks of Star and above
- OA Functions
- Eagle Board of Reviews
- All Award Ceremonies and Dress Events
> Court of Honor
> District Dinners
> Scout Sunday
> Official Webelos visits
- Other events at the Scoutmaster's discretion

For Scoutmaster Conferences and Boards of Review for ranks up to and including First Class, the minimal scout uniform accepted is the official Field Uniform Scout shirt, neckerchief, and the merit badge sash if the scout has been awarded merit badges.  However, Scouts are strongly encouraged to wear the complete Official Scout Uniform if they own it.

Boys will be expected to own a complete Official Scout Field Uniform, including official Boy Scout pants or shorts, upon earning the rank of First Class.
