Sportsman Webelo Pin

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I have a question regarding the Webelo Sportsman Pin. Requirement 2 states that the scout must earn two belt loops for individual sports. Then it goes on to list the sport loops. However Archery and BB guns are NOT listed.


At our Day Camp this summer about 7 boys from my Webelo I den earned both archery and bb gun loops. (Approved Council run ranges)


Wouldn't these loops count towards Sportsman even though they aren't specifically listed? If not, why not? I know I will be needing to explain this one this fall


Thanks for your help.

this same subject discussed here:



"Do These:


1. Show the signals used by officials in one of these sports: football, basketball, baseball, soccer, or hockey.

2. Explain what good sportsmanship means.

3. While you are a Webelos Scout, earn Cub Scout Sports belt loops for two individual sports ( badminton, bicycling, bowling, fishing, golf, gymnastics, ice skating, marbles, physical fitness, roller skating, snow ski and board sports, swimming, table tennis, or tennis).

4. While you are a Webelos Scout, earn Cub Scout Sports belt loops for two team sports ( baseball, basketball, soccer, softball, volleyball, flag football, or ultimate).

AS much as it pains me to say it no it is not one of the specified sports. The boys at the day camp I worked with as range director had a team sport that they did also I think it was flag football. Belt loops are not hard I even did marbles with the whole den during a den meeting when I was WDL. The one of the above that day camps do do regularly is fishing.
