BSA -- Cub Scouting - Sports and Academic Belt Loops and Pins

The Cub Scouts Sports and Academic Program is one method of addressing
the third aim of Scouting: the development of physical, mental and
emotional fitness. Fitness includes the body (well-tuned and
healthy), the mind (able to think and solve problems), and the
emotions (self-control, courage, and self-respect). As in most
activities in Cub Scouting, this is not meant to be a highly
competitive program, instead, the boys are encouraged to DO THEIR
BEST.

The Sports and Academic Program is an optional program for all Cub
Scouts. It is not part of the normal requirements towards ranks
(except were used in obtaining the Webelos Sportsman and Athlete
activity badges). Its purpose is to assist the Scouts in learning a
new skill, or improving one they already posses.

Loops, pins, letters can be are earned by all Cub Scouts.

Complete details on using the sports program are contained in the the
Leader Guide for Cub Scouts Sports and Academics,(#34295).
