FAQ

            People are often confused as to the requirements for the Sports and Academic Belt Loops, Pins and Letters. Belt Loops are awarded to a scout who has tried an activity and learned a little bit about its rules and how it is performed. For example the Bowling Belt Loop can be awarded to a scout who has gone bowling and has learned how many balls are allowed what the object of the game is and understands a little bit about keeping score. To earn a pin for an activity the scout must earn points over a 90 day period. Points accumulated by hours spent practicing, exercising and training for the sport. A pin can usually be awarded to a scout who participates in an activity such as Little League or Youth Soccer. Practice and playing time during a league season would qualify you for a Sports Pin. A Letter is awarded to a scout who earns a pin along with their adult partner, such as a scout who is a player on a team and their partner coaches the team.
