Patrol Leaders Training Task


1 chair per scout


Arrange the chairs in a single line, with the backs of the chairs in line. Seat the two teams on the chairs such that there is one cadet per chair with the two teams facing each other. Remove the person from the centre chair so that there is an empty chair in the middle. The person removed then becomes the co-ordinator for the attempt. As soon as the task hits a dead-end, move everyone back to his or her original position and swap the co-ordinator with one of the other ‘frogs’. Repeat until the exercise is completed or the time has expired.
