Academics Beltloops & Pins

The Academics and Sports program gives Cub Scouts extra activities to do. 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, such as astronomy, chess, computers, or science; or golf, gymnastics, ice skating, or tennis, to name a few of the parts that are in the program.

This is a chance to try something new and to do your best without worrying about winning or losing. Cub Scouts earn awards for learning teamwork and skills, getting physically fit, finding and building new talents, and doing your best. These things are more important than winning.

Academics and Sports Belt Loops

You earn a belt loop to wear with your uniform when you complete three specific requirements for each Academics or Sports activity. You can take part in three ways: (1) by yourself or with your family, (2) in your den or pack, or (3) in school or as part of an organized team.

Academics and Sports Letter and Pins

Once you have earned the belt loop, you can stop. But if you liked it and want to do more with the activity, you may complete extra requirements to earn a pin.

A good place to display Academics and Sports pins is on the Academics and Sports letter. You can wear the letter on a sweater or a jacket, or display or frame it. The letter does not go on the Cub Scout uniform. There are no special requirements for earning the letter, because it's just for displaying the pins.
