Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) Training is critical to the success of the Scouting program. This hands-on training provides adult leaders a practical introduction to the patrol method of a boy-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to plan, execute, and enjoy a successful and fun outdoor program. In addition, the teaching methods, activities, and games model the variety of teaching used in effective and engaging Scouting programs.
IOLS is required for all Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters in order to be considered trained. Completion of this course, along with Youth Protection and Scoutmaster Specific trainings, will enable direct contact leaders to be rechartered in your unit as a Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster. This training is also recommended Troop Committee members and other volunteers looking to be more involved with their troop.

The district is working on improving how it gets information to all of its Units, Scouts, and Scouters. We've set up a Mailchimp account that distributes the district's monthly newsletter. We've started with all the emails listed on youth and adult registrations currently registered in the district. Anyone can subscribe to the district newsletter here. For more information visit the Alpine District Newsletter webpage.
The Chief Seattle Council is divided into 12 districts with leadership provided by the District Executive, District Chairman, and the District Commissioner. Except for the District Executive, the committee is staffed by volunteers.
District Meetings: The Alpine District Committee meets at the Sportsman Club in Issaquah on the first Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm. All are welcome. The voting members of the Alpine District consist of volunteer representatives from each chartered organization having at least one BSA unit, plus annually elected members-at-large who in turn elect the District Chair.
