How to earn your badge

  1. Take part in a sport or physical activity regularly for at least six weeks.
  2. Take part in a match, competition or demonstration of that sport.
  3. Show your Lodge, Colony or an adult the skills you have learned.

Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities.  For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
