[ Inside front cover, and 18.104.22.168 ] Unauthorized Changes to Advancement ProgramNo council, committee, district, unit, or individual has the authority to add to, or subtract from, advancement requirements.(There are limited exceptions relating only to youth members with disabilities. For details see section 10, Advancement for MembersWith Special Needs.) [ Inside front cover, and 22.214.171.124 ] The Guide to Safe Scouting AppliesPolicies and procedures outlined in the Guide to Safe Scouting, No. 34416, apply to all BSA activities, including those related toadvancement and Eagle Scout service projects. [Note: Always reference the online version, which is updated quarterly.] [ 126.96.36.199 ] ] Who Approves Cub Scout Advancement?A key responsibility for den leaders is to implement the core den meeting plans as outlined in the Den & Pack Meeting ResourceGuide, No. 34409. For Wolf, Bear, and Webelos advancement, den leaders take the lead in approving requirements, though theirassistants, and also parents who help at meetings, may be asked to play the role of Akela and assist. Parents sign for requirementsthat, according to meeting plans and instructions in the handbooks, take place at home. For the Bobcat trail and Tiger Cubachievements, parents (or adult partners) should sign in the boys handbook; the den leader then approves as progress is recordedin the dens advancement record. [ 188.8.131.52 ] Do Your BestAdvancement performance in Cub Scouting is centered on its motto: Do Your Best. When a boy has done thishis very bestthenregardless of the requirements for any rank or award, it is enough; accomplishment is noted. This is why den leaders, assistants, andparents or guardians are involved in approvals. Generally they know if effort put forth is really the Cub Scouts best. [ 184.108.40.206 ] Cub Scout Academics and Sports ProgramMore than just a recognition opportunity, this program develops new skills, improves those existing, and otherwise enriches CubScouting. Details can be found in the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program Guide, No. 34299. Activities include subjects likescience, video games, collecting, and chess; and sports such as baseball, skateboarding, and table tennis. Each has two levelsabelt loop and a pin. Belt loops, which can be earned more than once, are awarded when each of three requirements is met. CubScouts may then continue with additional requirements and earn the pin. Archery and BB gun shooting are included, but can only beconducted at a council presented activity with certified supervisors.Additional notes of interest: Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts may complete requirements for all Academics and Sports Belt Loops and Pins(except shooting sports) in a family, den, pack, school, or community environment. Tiger Cubs must work with their parents oradult partners. Parents and partners do not earn loops or pins. Akela (Pronounced Ah-KAY-la) Title of respect used in Cub Scoutingany good leader is Akela.
