To Register for this program, consider the following:
¦ Experience Level: There are no prerequisites for joining a Mariner’s troop other than an interest and willingness to complete the requirements of the Mariner pin within the first year of being a Mariner.
¦ Ability Level: Girls of all ability levels can participate in a Mariner troop with the appropriate accommodations.
¦ Age: It is recommended that Mariner troops be comprised of girls in grades 8 through 12. Girls younger than eighth grade level may find some of the physical activities too challenging depending on their strength, size, and ability. Girls older than eighth grade level sometimes find it difficult to commit to regular troop meetings because of the heavy pressures and responsibilities of high school. Eighth grade is the optimal time to retain or reengage girls as they consider how they’d like to pursue new, adventurous opportunities through Girl Scouts.
