Scout Requirements Study Guide
| || I pledge allegiance to the flag|
of the United States of America
and to the republic for which it stands,
one nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
| ||The Scout sign shows you are a Scout. Give it each time you recite the Scout Oath and Law. When a Scout or Scouter raises the Scout sign, all Scouts should make the sign, too, and come to silent attention.|
| || The Scout salute shows respect. Use it to salute the flag of the United States of America. You may also salute a Scout leader or another Scout. |
Give the Scout salute by forming the Scout sign with your right hand and then bringing that hand upward until your forefinger touches the brim of your hat or the arch of your right eyebrow. The palm of your hand should not show.
| || The Scout handshake is made with the hand nearest the heart and is offered as a token of friendship. Extend your left hand to another Scout and firmly grasp his left hand.|
Only use this handshake when both people are in uniform.
| || The square knot is also know as the joining knot because it can join two ropes and because it is the first knot Scouts learn when they join the BSA. It has many uses:from securing bundles, packages, and the sails of ships to tying the ends of bandages. |
To tie a square knot, hold one rope end in each hand. Pass the right end over and under the rope in your left hand and pull it snug. Next, pass the rope now in your left hand over and under the one now in your right, and pull it snug.
| || On my honor I will do my best|
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
| || A Scout is:|
Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful

You are correct in that Bobcat is the first thing anyone joining Cub Scouts needs to do. You are also correct that these boys are NOT required to earn their Webelos rank to earn their AOL.
Here are the joining requirements:
Cub Scouting is for boys in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. Boys who are older than 10, or who have completed the fifth grade, can no longer join Cub Scouting, but they may be eligible to join the Boy Scouting or Venturing program.
If he fits the requirements, then by all means get him into the unit!
