|Cub Scout Tiger Cub Rank|
Tiger Cub Rank Badge
The Tiger Scout program is for boys who have completed Kindergarten (or are age 7). After earning the Bobcat badge, a boy may earn the Tiger Cub badge by completing 15 achievements involving simple physical and mental skills.
The new Tiger Cub first learns the Cub Scout promise, the Cub Scout sign, and the Cub Scout salute. He is then awarded his Tiger Cub immediate recognition emblem. This is a tiger paw with four strands for beads that he wears on the right pocket.
As a boy completes each part of the Tiger Cub achievements, he will be awarded either an orange (den activities), white (family activities), or black ("Go See It") bead. When the boy has earned five beads of each color, he is eligible to receive his Tiger Cub badge. The Tiger Cub badge is presented to the adult partner at the next pack meeting. In an impressive ceremony, the adult partner in turn presents the badge to the boy.
Tiger Cubs can also complete Electives at any time.
All registered Tiger Cubs, Wolf Cubs, Bear Cubs, and Webelos Scouts can earn optional Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program awards known as "Belt Loops and Pins." - Academic and Sports Program, p. 1 & Cub Scout Leader Book, p. 31-1.

In 1982, Tiger Cubs was started as a "Pack-associated" program with Tiger Cubs being 7 years old. They wore special orange T-shirts with iron-on "badges". Beginning in 1996, when a Tiger Cub graduated to the Pack, he was presented with a "Tiger Cub BSA" strip that would be worn just below the right pocket of the blue uniform shirt:Image:TigerCubsBSApatch.jpg When the grade-based rank system was phased in in 1986, the age for beginning Tiger Cubs was lowered to First grade. In 2001, the surrent diamond-shaped Tiger Cub rank badge was introduced. At this time, the Tiger Cub Den was fully integrated into the pack; Tiger Cubs now wear the blue Cub Scout shirt.
