We watched the first half of the England/Sweden game at the end of Cubs
last night. One of them asked whether there was a "football watching"
badge :-) And actually, it turns out there is something close. The
Sports Enthusiast badge says.....
The Cub Scout must complete these five activities.
1. Know the rules and laws for a sport and explain them to an adult.
2. Have a good background knowledge of the teams and sports
personalities of their chosen sport.
3. Explain what equipment is needed for the sport.
4. Be able to list some major events for the sport of their choice.
5. Give a description of events that they have attended in pursuit
their interest. If this has not been possible, explain to a
how they keep up to date with their sport.
Are there any other cubs leaders out there who have done this badge who
can recommend some way of "validating" that a cub has met these

The most difficult is point one.
When it comes down to it many watch sport (some even play it) but are unable
to explain the rules of it.
I'd take one of 3 attitudes.
1) watch football with cubs. give them a badge. everybody's happy.
2) watch football with cubs. move on to next activity. never mention
3) chat to them in pairs about football over a period of weeks and at
the end of it all give them a badge. Perhaps get a parent in as a
i'd never ever ever do powerpoint presentations etc. It sounds
soooooooooo like school. all the cubs having to sit quietly and be
lectured to. You can give them confoidence in front of a group without
making them do that sort of thing.
The attitude we took a few years ago was number 2.
