I assume that before awarding the pin you had the boy show you his record
of points earned? Simply playing on an organized team for the entire
season is not sufficient. They must also earn 60 points in 90 days, a
point being 30 min of pratice or competition with no more than 5 points per
day allowed and maintain the record *themselves*. For most team sports at
the Webelos level this is easily met although around here for Soccer, the
boys often had to put in an extra hour or two of practice per week on their
own to get enough points during the season.
I hope you also encouraged the Sports Letter award as well. This is earned
by the Cub when he gets an adult partner to earn his or her pin and records
their points along with his own.
