Why Cub Scout Sports?

The Cub Scout Sports program provides Cub Scouts with the opportunity to become aquainted with and participate in all kinds of sports--summer and winter sports, indoor and outdoor sports, active and less-active sports, and team and individual sports. When implemented properly, the program is an active physical fitness program for Cub Scouts.

A Cub Scout may participate in Sports activities in his unit, in his community, or by himself. However the boy participates, he will have fun learning a new sport, developing new skills, competing with his peers, and being recognized. Throughout his experience in the program, the Cub Scout is encouraged to learn and practice good sportsmanship, and to do his best.

Cub Scout Sports emphasizes participation of the family by involving an adult partner. The pack will introduce the boy and his family to habits that may carry through many years.

Recognitions for the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program

A variety of recognition items are available for the boys who participate in the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program. (Adults are not awarded with belt loops or pins.) Packs are encouraged to include the cost of these in their annual budgets. Packs may consider charging a fee to each participating Cub Scout and adult partner to cover the cost of these awards.
— Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program Guide, 2003 Revision (BSA Supply No. 34299B)

Belt Loops

Belt loops are awarded to boys who complete the three belt loop requirements in an academic subject or sport. Participation can take place individually or with the family, in the den or pack, or in the school or community. Academics belt loops are gold, and Sports belt loops are silver, with the exception of Archery and BB Shooting, which are copper colored.

Belt loops may be worn with the Cub Scout uniform on the Cub Scout belt. Webelos Scouts who have chosen to wear the khaki uniform may still wear the blue Cub Scout belt so as to display the belt loops they have earned.

Pins

Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts may choose to continue their involvement in an Academics or Sports area and earn the pin. Pins may be worn on the Cub Scout Academics and Sports letter.

Earning Loops and Pins multiple times

Many Webelos Scouts may earn belt loops and pins a second time to qualify for Webelos Activity Badges. All boys may earn belt loops more than once; however, leaders should encourage boys to try different requirements and earn the pin. Packs should have a clear policy in place to determine whether the pack or the boy's family will be responsible for the cost of awards that are earned more than once.

Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program Guide #34299B, 2003 Revision, p.4 & Cub Scout Leader Book, p. 31-1.

Academics and Sports Letter

The Academics and Sports letter ("C", No. 00805)) is available to boys for displaying Academics and Sports pins that Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts earn. The letter, representing "Cub Scouts," can be worn on a sweater or jacket, or displayed or framed. It does not go on the uniform. There are no specific requirements for earning the letter, as it is designed merely to display pins.

Pocket certificate

The Cub Scout Academics and Sports pocket certificate (No. 33711A) is available as immediate recognition for boys involved in the program.

Activity medals

Medals come with blue and gold ribbons and are available in gold (No. 00936), silver (No. 00935), and bronze (No. 00934). Pack leaders may choose to award medals to boys for special recognition in the program.

Trophies

A trophy for the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program is available for presentation to boys, dens, or families at events such as pack and den tournaments. There are no specific requirements for the trophies.

Participation emblem

This emblem (No. 00803) is available to all boys and adults who participate in the Academics and Sports program. Individuals may purchase them, or packs may decide to award them to everyone involved.
