          Academics and Sports Program (Belt Loops and Pins)

The Academics and Sports program gives Cub Scouts extra recognition activities to earn. In Academics subjects and Sports, Cub Scouts learn new skills, become better scholars, learn sportsmanship, and have fun. You can get to know a sport or an academic subject that's new to you --maybe astronomy, chess, computers, science; golf, hiking, tennis, or skateboarding to name a few in the program.

Belt loops and pins are a great way to help fulfill the aims of Scouting—build character, develop citizenship, and encourage mental and physical fitness.  Through a variety of subjects, you can stretch your mind and abilities by exploring the wonders of science, learning about the world, and expanding skills in new areas. This is a chance to try something new, do your best, and earn recognition all at the same time.  (Please note that there is a Pack policy that up to 5 belt loops can be earned at home per year.)

Click here for a current list of loops & pins. Then click on each award for the requirements.

If you're son wants to work on any of these achievements on his own, outside of his den activities, simply print off the worksheets from here and submit them to his den leader upon completion. If the belt loop/pin is new and does not have a worksheet designed for it yet, print off the requirements and submit all of your son's work to his den leader.
