How to earn your badge
You should be aiming to work towards this badge over a period of 6 to 12 months.
- Regularly take part in a street sport activity such as rollerskating, skateboarding, BMX or any other street sport you agree with your leadership team. Show how you’ve improved over time.
- Demonstrate skills in your chosen sport to a group of young people and encourage them to try it out.
- Talk to your examiner or instructor about the safety rules and how to use the skills you’ve learned responsibly.
- Take part in at least two competitions or demonstrations. Talk about your performance with the examiner or instructor and take on board ways you can improve.
- Show how to care for your equipment and explain what you should look out for when it’s nearing the end of its life.
Every individual who undertakes an activity badge should face a similar degree of challenge and as a result some requirements may need to be adapted. It is completely acceptable to change some of the requirements of the badges to allow individuals to access the badge (for example where there are special needs, cultural issues, or religious considerations to take into account) and the requirements outlined for activity badges do allow for some flexibility in order to obtain the badge. If you would like help or advice when considering adapting the requirements of a badge please contact UK Headquarters.
