Wearing the uniform correctly is an important part of the Cub Scout program. Unless your den leader says otherwise, Scouts should wear their Class A Cub Scout uniform to all Scouting activities.
The Class A uniform
is the official dress uniform. It consists of a blue shirt (tan for Webelos), appropriate rank neckerchief, hat, and slide, and belt. Insignia must be correctly placed on the shirt. Pack 416 is a "waist up" Pack, meaning we do not require the official Cub Scout pants or socks. However, as part of the Class A uniform, scouts should wear pants or shorts that are navy blue, olive green, tan, or blue denim. Location of patches are depicted on the back cover of the Cub Scout handbook. Anything else that does not go on the shirt can be placed on the Scout's red brag vest.
The Class B uniform
consists of our blue Pack T-shirt. Wearing the rank appropriate cap is also encouraged. Class B uniforms are appropriate for work projects, sporting activities, or when their planned activity may get them dirty. Den leaders may request for scouts to wear this shirt instead of the Class A uniform.
Right and Left Sleeve:
contain unit patches
Scout World Crest, rank badges, elective arrowheads (Wolves and Bears), service stars, and square knot emblems.
This is where temporary patches and pins go. Everything else goes on the Scout's red brag vest.
Where Can I Purchase the Uniform?
You can buy the uniform at the Phoenix Scout Shop. See the FAQ page for location and business hours. There is also a Scout Shop in Mesa by Bass Pro Shop.
Uniform Inspection Sheets
Every year the Pack holds a uniform inspection. Below are the official BSA uniform inspection sheets, which also has an insignia guide on the second page. Yes, even adult leaders get inspected!
