The best way to get your Class A uniform is through the council scout shop. That way all proceeds stay within our council. If you want to browse their online store you can just click here. On the left side there is a filter area. Just click on uniforms in the catorgy field and select "Cub Scouts" and what rank you need in the program field. Only those items will appear then. When buying a shirt, there will be a drop down on the item screen to select what size you want. After you add whatever you are buying and go to check out, add in the notes that you want the patches sewn on. There is a $3 fee for each patch but well worth it. Not only is it well done, but you know the patches are in the correct place, something very helpful for new scouts. There are only 5 patches so the sewing fee should be $15.
You don't pay online. A scout shop rep will call you for this info and to confirm your order. You will also need patches. The rep can help you with that. The patches you will need are:
The council strip
Our pack number (so you need 2-#2's and 1-#4)
World Crest (this is the purple patch on the left chest that all scouts around the world wear)
If you would prefer to physically go to their store or just call them to order, their address and phone number is:
Frank Fickett Scout Training and Service Center
12500 North IH 35
Austin, Texas, 78753
Below are what items you will need for different ranks
Lions wear a blue tee shirt instead of the usual button down Class A's. This is so they don't have to buy an expensive uniform until they are sure scouting is something they want to stick with. The neckerchief and slide are optional.
Here are the items they will need:
Belt - it's not on the Lion page but just ask the rep when they call to confirm
They don't need any patches for this uniform. Only the button down uniforms get patches.
Tigers, wolves, and bears all wear the blue button down Class A's. This is when they start wearing patches on their uniform. Below is a list of the items they will need:
Blue Cub Scout Shirt
The shirt and belt will stay with them through these 3 ranks but the cap, neckerchief, slide, and handbook will be different each year.
Webelos wear the same shirt as boy scouts and leaders so they are all adult sizes. You can get them in Poplin or Polyester microfiber. The microfiber will cost a little more but be more waterproof and should last longer. Here are the items a Webelos will need:
Scouts BSA Shirt
Blue Shoulder Loops
Belts - They use the green belt like boy scouts use but they can continue to use their blue cub scout belt if wanted. Their old adventure loops won't fit on the green belts.
Webelos Colors (this is a 3 strip ribbon that is worn on the right sleeve that their adventure pins go on)
The handbook will be for both Webelos 1 and 2
Adults will use the same type of shirt that the Webelos use (Scouts BSA) but they don't usually have a neckerchief. The only thing an adult needs is:
Scouts BSA shirt
Position Patch (ex. Den Leader, Committee Member, Assistant Cubmaster)
Just ask about the patches when the rep calls.
