Here is part of the commitment:

Instructor and RSO candidates will agree to help the Boy Scouts of America in the creation and/or implementation of the year-round shooting sports program within the Cradle of Liberty Council.

This agreement is in return for the discounted NRA Instructor Training. Candidates must understand the importance and the necessity of participation to assist the Council in a successful year-round BSA shooting sports program.  Candidates must assist in Council activities and not just with the unit the candidate is involved.
