What do they mean by First Class -  First Year?

New Scouts should earn their First Class rank during their first year in the troop. By doing so, these new Scouts become contributors to the troop. During the first year the Scout works on Tenderfoot, Second and First Class requirements at the same time.  Then Star, Life and Eagle requirements.
You can use a form called First Class -- First Year Tracking sheet #34118 to keep track where you are on the Advancement Trail.
