Put more fun into your Cub Scout program with the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program, a supplemental activities program in academics
and sports focusing on the Cub Scout doing his best. Cub Scouts learn new skills, become better scholars, learn sportsmanship and have
fun while trying something new and not worrying about winning or losing.
Cub Scouts can participate in three ways; by himself or with his family, with his den or in his school. He chooses which subject he would
like to try. Once he completes three specific requirements for each academic or sports activity, he has earned a belt loop. He wears the
belt loops on his Cub Scout belt. If he likes the subject and wants to learn more, he can complete extra requirements and earn a pin.
He displays his pins on an Academics and Sports letter. The letter with pins can be worn on a sweater or a jacket, or made into a display
and framed. The letter does not go on the Cub Scout uniform. It may be purchased at the Scout shop and there are no special requirements
for earning the letter, it's just for displaying the pins.
Cub Scouts may choose from these subjects:
Language and Culture
Map and Compass
Reading and Writing
Snow Ski and Board Sports
