The NEW Sports & Academics Program!

As you may have heard, the BSA has announced some sweeping
changes for the Sports and Academics program this year.
Originally, the supporting program materials for the 'new'
program were to be made available to the field in September,
1999. It now seems that this will be delayed somewhat. To
prepare our Councils for the new program, BSA National has
released some preliminary information which we've published
in the Virtual Cub Leader's Handbook. This information
- FOUR NEW BELT LOOPS AND PINS
- THE NEW SPORTS & ACADEMICS LEADERS GUIDE
- NEW LETTER INSIGNIA TO REPLACE OLD "S" & "A" BADGES
- CHANGES TO THE ARCHERY LOOP & PIN REQUIREMENTS
- PARENTS RECEIVING PINS (NOT)
- NEW, CLARIFIED REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL LOOPS & PINS
- TROPHY CONSOLIDATION
Until the new "Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program Guide"
is released, this information is "subject to change." One
thing IS FOR SURE though... The new program will include
some major improvements!
