You can do most of Tiger Achievement 3 at a single meeting. One of the requirements (a fire drill) will have to be completed at home. The Go See It – visiting a sporting event – can be done as a separate activity.
When visiting a sporting event, consider going to a local high school game or even middle school game. Your Tigers will enjoy it and you don’t have to pay top dollar to go to a professional sporting event.
Consider going to a sporting event which your Tigers play. For example, if it is soccer season and they all play soccer, you can tie this in with the soccer beltloop. If they play the sport they have already done most of the requirements for the belt loop.
If you are going to a sport they don’t already play, there is probably a belt loop for it anyway. Take some time to get them started on the beltloop by going over the rules of the sport at the den meeting. Then take some time to start practicing. If they enjoy it, you can complete the beltloop as a later den meeting.
