History of the Tiger Cub program

In 1982, Tiger Cubs was started as a "Pack-associated" program with Tiger Cubs being 7 years old. They wore special orange T-shirts with iron-on "badges". Beginning in 1996, when a Tiger Cub graduated to the Pack, he was presented with a "Tiger Cub BSA" strip that would be worn just below the right pocket of the blue uniform shirt:Image:TigerCubsBSApatch.jpg When the grade-based rank system was phased in in 1986, the age for beginning Tiger Cubs was lowered to First grade. In 2001, the current diamond-shaped Tiger Cub rank badge was introduced. In 2007, the Tiger Cub Den was fully integrated into the pack; Tiger Cubs now wear the blue Cub Scout shirt.
