A fully chartered troop is a troop that has the following in place:
- Charter Agreement
- Captain and Lieutenants ID Document
- Captain's Letter of Reference from a Catholic Priest in Good Standing
- Captain's Diocesan Safe Conduct Certificate
- Payment of all National dues
The youth cadets are divided in the Junior and Senior cadets. The Junior cadets, grades 1 - 5, are divided into the St. Matthew, St. Mark, St. Luke, St. John and St. George patrols by grade. The senior cadets, grades 6 - 12, are divided into patrols of mixed ages and named after a Catholic blessed or saint.
The youth cadets will complete a series of spiritual, patriotic and manly skill requirements by grade level to advance within the troop. The Senior Cadets can complete Achievement Courses to gain AC Stars and become eligible for the highest honor within TSG, the Tribunes of Saint George for our Supreme Pontiff.
