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).
