Young Athletes' Bill Of Rights
Posted On: 2022-03-07

Cub Scout athletes are all protected by a bill of rights. This has been prepared by physical education experts and should be an integral part of your pack program.

The ten points of this Bill of Rights are listed below:

Each Cub has:

  1. The right to participate in sports.
  2. The right to participate at his own ability level.
  3. The right to qualified adult leadership.
  4. The right to a safe and healthy environment.
  5. The right to share in leadership and decision-making.
  6. The right to play as a child, not as an adult.
  7. The right to proper preparation.
  8. The right to equal opportunity to strive for success.
  9. The right to be treated with dignity.
  10. The right to have fun.

(The Young Athletes Bill of Rights was created to ensure that all Cub Scout athletes would have a positive experience while learning new skills and doing their best in some of our nation's favorite sports activities. For more information you may want to refer to the Cub Scout Sports Leaders Guide.)
