Badge week and progress dairy weeks are coming up and are on the following dates. Please not if your child does not attend we cannot make this up at a future time and can be done on the designated dates within their own class time and slot only:
Badge week: This is for badges only but please bring your book so you will have a record of your childs badge progress. While we try to keep a record within the club, this is very difficult to maintain accuracy especially with over 1000 members and also when some children attend a few times a week. We have no records from other clubs either so we cannot trace your child badge work from a previous club. This is why it is so important to keep a record in their book.
Preschool 3,2 and 1
RG intermediate awards
RGC advanced awards
Your child will always start at badge 8 in BG in recreation if they have not done any badge work before regardless of ability and work their way up progressively towards the RG intermediate awards. In improvers and advanced class in which they will begin at RGC advanced awards.
Some of the higher level badges are hard to complete and your child may not pass this badge. In this case we will try to give them a lower level badge they have not yet achieved or have missed so they are not disappointed.
These are designed to help you monitor your childs skill progression. There is a minimum of 1 skill assessed per progress week and sometime we may add additional sheets to extend their range of skills. We will also provide homework for your child to complete. Some of the higher level skills are difficult to achieve with just 1 hour a week and require additional home exercises to achieve.
Please write in the parents section of the book any concerns you have about your childs progress or confidence, the coaches will make a note of this an endeavour to help them as much as possible.
