I’ve noticed more ultimate and disc golf courses being built at local parks. Ultimate seems to be an up and coming sport. So if your den has some time on a beautiful fall weekend, consider grabbing a frisbee and playing some ultimate. If they have already earned their Ultimate belt loop from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program, then they can work on the pin.
Ultimate Pin Requirements
Earn the Ultimate belt loop, and complete five of the following requirements:
- Compete in a pack or community ultimate or disc golf tournament.

- Demonstrate skill in the following catching techniques: one-handed, clapping, and sandwich.
