Sports are a great way for Cub Scouts learn about exercise and sportsmanship and to put that knowledge to play Ultimate or another sport not played before. Not only is it important to do your best when you try new sports but it is important to understand the rules of being a good sport no matter the outcome of the game. Play ball, soccer, tennis, or any sport! Have a sports competition with another Cub Scout pack in your area. Have athletes from a local high school or college speak at your den or pack meeting. Ask them to teach you about their sport. Learn a sport you can play with your family: golf, tennis, bowling, swimming, or skating. Have a pack sports day. Put the Outing in Scouting. Cub Scouts can create an obstacle course for the pack to enjoy. Play other games such as ring toss, hoop games, soap bubble contests, and hoop obstacle course. Work on advancements focusing on sports, physical fitness and aquatics and games.
