Cub Scout Sports: BB Shooting

Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts may complete requirements in a family, den, pack, school, or community environment. Tiger Cubs must work with their parents or adult partners. Parents and partners do not earn loops or pins.  

Requirements for the BB Shooting Sports Belt Loop

The BB gun loop, pin and letter can be awarded only by a certified Cub Scout BB gun shooting director at a BSA approved camp

A Cub Scout Sport for Camp Only, Shooting Sports for Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, and Parents in Camp, No. 13-550, has been developed for those who will give guidance to Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts in learning BB-gun and archery shooting-sports skills while in camp.

The safety and shooting participation belt loop (BB shooting) can only be awarded with approval of the camp BB-gun shooting-sports director to Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts who meet the following qualifications:

  1. Complete camp basic BB-gun marksmanship safety course.
  2. Complete the following shooting requirements:
    1. Fire five groups of shots (three shots per group) that can be covered by a quarter, and then adjust the BB gun sight.
    2. Fire a pro-marksman score of five bull's-eyes-TQ-40-in five shots each, achieving a minimum score of eight per shot.

General Sports Requirements

Following are the requirements for earning the Sports belts loops and pins.

Belt loops and pins are earned only by Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts (not adults).
The archery and BB-gun shooting belt loops and pins must be earned under BSA range-trained supervision. The BB-gun shooting loop and pin must be earned at a BSA facility range.
Requirements may be adjusted to accommodate the special needs of Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts with disabilities.
Webelos Scouts may earn a belt loop or pin a second time to qualify for Webelos activity badges.
Boys may earn belt loops more than once; however, leaders should encourage boys to try different requirements and earn the pin. Packs should have a clear policy in place about whether the pack or the boy's family is responsible for the cost of awards earned more than once.
