Phoenix District Roundtable
March 4, 2021 | 7:00 pm | In-person
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is held at the Barbara Bush Library rear parking lot (6817 Cypresswood Dr, Spring, TX 77379). Bring a chair, something to keep you warm and/or dry, and a face covering.
Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas, information on upcoming events and trainings, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
Roundtable breakouts are a great place for leaders and parents to come together to share so everyone can learn more about Scouting.
- Cub Scout breakout focuses on the needs of leaders and volunteers in packs. Leaders are not on their own and don't have to reinvent the wheel. Learn about the resources available to help put together a top-notch program.
- Scouts BSA breakout focuses on leaders and volunteers in troops, crew, ships to share quality resources, knowledge, and skills that enable and motivate leaders to deliver an outstanding program. Parents and leaders of Webelos Scouts crossing over into troops are also invited.
- Order of the Arrow breakout is for members of the Order of the Arrow.
- Special interest focuses on a special topic each month.

Pushmobile is a relay race using simple, homemade, Cub Scout-powered cars. Cub Scout dens make their own pushmobile. Four to eight youth work together as a team to push their pushmobile through the course to the finish line. The purpose of this event is to have fun, promote participation in a team effort, and to provide an activity where "doing your best" is most important. Trophies are presented to the top three teams per rank and to the top three packs.
Teams are formed by Scout rank (kindergarten - 5th grade), often organized by dens. Teams need to be a minimum of four Scouts. The ideal team size is eight Scouts. Teams with less than eight Scouts may add Scouts from other ranks (as long as they are a lower grade) or packs. Every Scout will receive a patch. Registration is $8 per Scout. Late registration begins 3/25/21. There is no onsite registration. The event is being held at Masjid AlSalam (16700 Old Louetta Rd., Spring, TX 77379).

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional trainings offered around the council. For more information about training, contact Rhonda Bill
