The Tiger Uniform


Required:
  • Shirt (Long or Short Sleeve)
  • Patches (see below)

  • Neckerchief
  • Slide
The shirt will last through third Grade - so size it appropriately.

The Belt is used to hold the Adventure Belt Loops as they are earned.

The Pack provides the neckerchief and slide.

Short sleeved shirts are recommended since the sleeves will still "fit" when too big.

Optional:
  • Hat
  • Pants or Shorts / Skorts
  • Socks

Each Year:
  • New Hat
  • New Socks
  • New Neckerchief - Pack will provide
  • New Slide - Pack will provide

The Uniform Code:

Your son or daughter should be encouraged to wear their uniform appropriately.  The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. They should understand the importance of representing the entire BSA organization while in uniform.  


Neckerchiefs:


Pack 777 wears our neckerchiefs in a traditional manner with the rolled neckerchief on top of a folded under collar.  (the picture is not correct for our pack)

Time to Sew?

The inside of the handbook covers shows the proper location for all patches.

TIP: 
Badge Magic double stick adhesive is much faster & easier than needle & thread.  Its available at the Scout Shop in Waterbury.

  • Scout Emblem (above left pocket)
  • Council Patch
  • Flag comes with the shirt

Wearing the Uniform

In general, every Cub Scout should wear his or her uniform to all Cub Scouting activities, including den and pack meetings, unit outings, and any activities done with members of the den or pack. 

When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, a pack may opt to have the Cub Scouts wear an alternate uniform, such as an activity shirt. These are sometimes referred to as Class B Uniforms.  

Pack leaders should provide advance notice of any occasion when the youth should wear anything other than the complete uniform.

Here are some tips for wearing the uniform:
  • DO keep the uniform clean and in good repair. The official uniform is a sturdy, machine-washable garment that will last for years with proper care.
  • DO be sure to wear the complete uniform. A Cub Scout wearing a uniform with parts missing is not in uniform.
  • DO wear the neckerchief on top of the tucked under collar.
  • DO NOT wear non-BSA badges, awards, or insignia on the Cub Scout uniform or make any alterations to the uniform or insignia.
  • DO NOT mix uniform parts with non-uniform clothing, such as wearing a uniform cap with other clothing. With the exception of the neckerchief, the uniform should be treated as a unit—worn in its entirety, or not at all.  
  • YOU MAY wear the neckerchief alone with other clothing.
Any time you are uncertain about uniform regulations, ask the den leader for guidance.
