Belt Loops Revisited

One of my den leaders called and asked if her first year Webelos son could
earn belt loops and pins twice as he is in soccer and baseball each year. I
had not allowed this when I was a Webleos Den Leader.
My initial logic was that once he had earned it as a Wolf or Bear, he would
have to earn a different belt loop to fulfill the Webelos sportsman
requirements. After all, the purpose of the program is to expose the boys to
all types of sports.
So I bought the book. Imagine my surprise when I read in the leader guide
(Pg 19) that Webelos could earn the belt loop a second time!
Just goes to show "check your resources".
By the way, our Pack limits belt loops to five per boy per year as this is
the possible number required for Webelos pins.
