Tiger Cub Scout Uniform

> > > Triple Prizes < < <

The uniform is an important part of the Scouting program, especially for the youngest boys just starting their boy scout trail. It identifies the boys and adults with Tigers and gives them a sense of belonging to the den, the pack, and the Boy Scouts of America. Scouts enjoy wearing their Tiger uniform. They should wear it to all den meetings, pack meetings, and special pack activities.

The current uniform for the Tiger, introduced in August 2004, is the official blue Cub Scout shirt with orange/blue neckerchief and neckerchief slide, and blue Cub Scout pants. This replaces the Tiger Cub orange T-shirt with the Tiger Cub emblem on the front. The official Tiger cap, blue web belt with a Tiger buckle, and blue socks with orange band complete the uniform.
Adult partners don't have to wear a uniform, but it is highly recommended that they wear a Tiger Cub orange T-shirt or sweatshirt.

The Uniform Inspection Sheet has insignia placement guides.
If you wonder where a patch goes, it is probably a 'temporary' patch. See Scouting FAQ page for help - it can be displayed on the right pocket, red vest, wall display, or shoebox.

The uniform shown here is known as the Field Uniform. The Activity Uniform is a Scouting-related T-Shirt and scout pants. These two uniforms (Field and Activity) are often referred to as Class A and Class B uniforms, but that is not correct BSA terminology.

Cub Scout Packs can design their own Activity shirt. The most well-known place to design and purchase Pack t-shirts is the ClassB.com web site. They are an official licensee of the Boy Scouts of America run by Eagle Scouts and have a great reputation of service and quality products since 1982.

The Tiger den leader wears the official Cub Scout leader uniform, the Tiger cap, and the Tiger leader neckerchief. There is also a Male & Female Leader Uniform Inspection Sheet. See the BSA Insignia Guide for more info.

Even though I have reviewed the uniform Inspection sheet and patch guide..I see no measurements as to how far the World Crest patch is above the left pocket, and the distance between the council shoulder emblem and the pack numerals if there is no veteran unit insignia. Please help.  Joan

I had the same questions and using the guide that came with the adhesive sheet I pretty much winged it. The guide said for the world crest it should be halfway between the pocket and the shoulder seam. And the pack numerals I just left a space in between where the veteran insignia would have gone. I noticed many of the other boys in our den did not include this space but others did. My only thought on the world crest is that it looks to be high even though it is measured exact. Doing it again I would place it slightly lower than the halfway mark.

We were told at the headquarters that the World Crest patch was to be 1 1/2 inches centered above the left pocket

@H Warren - It looks like you were told incorrectly.  On page 66 of the current Guide to Awards and Insignia, it details where the World Crest goes.
"centered horizontally over left pocket and vertically between left shoulder seam and top of pocket".
