Top Gym Badge Scheme We have found that this badge scheme is an effective way to motivate the gymnasts to achieve all that is necessary for each level or badge. Gymnasts are tested every 10 weeks. For each badge they achieve there is a high quality embroidered badge plus a certificate. The scheme starts at Badge 6 and goes up to Badge 1 – afterwards the levels are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum 1 and Platinum 2. Children who show an exceptional aptitude to gymnastics are invited and given the opportunity to trial for a place in our Squads.
