Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program

Cub Scout Academics and Sports ProgramPut 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.
