Jump ball! Free throw! This month, Cub Scouts will have opportunities to play basketball and learn about sportsmanship. Invite a Boy Scout who is a member of his school's basketball team to teach the boys the rules of the game. Hold a pack basketball tournament, making sure to balance out the teams with older and younger boys. It's a good time to start working on the Basketball belt loop and pin. Play other games with hoops.
