The process of moving between Sections of Scouting is known in Scouting as Linking. That is, the linking from one section to the next.

This process is an important step in the life of our Youth Members - the challenges of the next section sometimes lead to apprehension and a 'fear of the unknown'

The process outlined below is used at Flagstaff Hill to ensure families are aware and importantly Youth Members are involved in this process as their journey through Scouting continues.


Identifying those 'ready to link'

Each term the Scout Group sends out advice to members who will soon be in the 'age bracket' for linking. This is usually done with a couple of weeks notice so you can start planning. Linking is an individual process (some youth members are ready before others, some need longer in their current section) - and this discussion should take place with the Section Leaders prior to making a decision.


Linking Ages

In 2018 Scouts Australia made adjustments to the linking ages (outlined below). These are a guideline and we will always look at the individual on a case by case basis to ensure the best possible option for the youth member to successfully link.
