Cub Scout Sports

Hockey Belt Loop


The information below was effective through May 31, 2015, when the Cub Scout advancement program was completely revised.

As part of the program changes, the Cub Scout Academics and Sports programs, including the Belt Loop and Pin mentioned here, was discontinued as of June 1, 2015.

The requirements listed below were taken from the
Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program Guide (34299) 2009 Printing.

This sport was added in 2009.

The Hockey belt loop and pin include roller hockey and ice hockey. You may complete requirements in either or both activities.


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.

  1. Explain ways to protect yourself while skating. Demonstrate how to put on all necessary safety equipment. Explain why proper safety equipment is important.
  2. Spend 30 minutes practicing the skills of hockey: skating, stick handling, passing, shooting, and checking. This may be over two different practice periods.
  3. Play a game of hockey while on roller skates or hockey skates.
