A Varsity Scout Team is the standard group for Varsity Scouts and is composed of one or more squads, and are supported by an adult team committee.
Varsity teams are usually expected to meet weekly, and go on outings monthly. They also hold Courts of Honor at least once a year; usually quarterly.
The team's adult Scouters are divided into two branches: Program, the Varsity Coach and Assistant Varsity Coaches, and Support, the Team Committee Chairman and the Team Committee. The team committee is composed of adult Program Advisors and may include a Treasurer and Secretary.
The troop is a registered "unit" with its local council. Other basic units are:
- Pack - Cub Scouting
- Troop - Boy Scouting
- Crew - Venturing
- Ship - Sea Scouting
- Post - Explorers
- Group - Learning for Life
