Whatever your Cub Scout-age boys love to do, there’s probably
a belt loop for it. Whether it’s Geology or Golf, Music or Marbles, Science or
Soccer—there’s plenty for everyone in the 25 Academics and 26 Sports subjects
We know that as a leader, sorting through requirements for
51 different awards is a daunting task. But don’t worry—help has arrived. Last
month, the BSA’s Innovation Team updated the Cub Scout Academics and Sports
Program Web site to include requirements for each award.
The process is simple. Just click on the name of the subject
your boys are interested in, and you’ll go to the list of requirements for
earning the corresponding belt loop and pin for that topic.
Planning the activities for your next pack or den meeting
just got easier. So why not print out the requirements for a belt loop or pin
and create a meeting agenda based around that fun advancement opportunity?
The Web site is convenient and easy to use, but you’ll still
need the Academics and Sports Program
Guide. The book expands on the lists of requirements,
providing additional information about each subject area.
