No activity done outside of the registration period can be considered for TPA.

The registration process is simple

    Scouting members receive a generous discount as part of the SSA & TPA partnership.
  • Alternatively for bulk registrations, Scouters must please contact the SSA National Office ( to make arrangements for group payment.
  • Submit your registration form and proof of payment to your Troop/Rover Scouter or SGL (as determined by your Group). They will submit it to the SSA National Office on your behalf.
