Welcome to Phoenix District’s

2020 Pinewood Derby

The Pinewood Derby, one of Cub Scouting’s most popular and successful family activities, is co-hosted this year by Troop 334 and Pack 425, and will be held at the Miami Springs Optimist Club on January 30, 2021.

Pinewood Derby cars (small wooden models that Cub Scouts make with help from their families) are powered by gravity and run down a track. Every Cub Scout has the opportunity to design and build their own “grand prix” car to enter in the race. Win or lose, participating Cub Scouts should take pride in having done their best, as well as learning craft skills, rules of fair play, and good sportsmanship – all things they will remember for life.
