08 January 2024

Get the Blue Peter Sport badge by trying archery!

Blue Peter's Sport badge is available to earn now and you can get it by trying any sport for the first time including archery.

The badge was designed by none other than Leah Williamson, one of the biggest female football stars on the planet!

Leah captained the England National team to their historic Euro 2022 victory; and won both the Women's Super League title and FA Cup with her club Arsenal.

To earn the badge, you have to:

  • Ask your parent or guardian for permission to apply and ask them to read the Privacy Notice and badge attraction terms and conditions.
  • Try a new sport, practice it three times for at least ten minutes and tell Blue Peter about it. Say why sport is important to you and which sporting heroes you’d love to see on Blue Peter.
  • Include a photo or video of yourself taking part in your new sport, or create some artwork of yourself doing the activity.

You must be aged between 5 and 15 years old to apply for the badge.

Beavers trying archery

On Merseyside, Archery GB Young Ambassadors Patience Wood and Alex Currums have been running taster sessions with Cub Scouts through Birkenhead District (Merseyside) with the support of Coach Lee Padmore.

Beaver Cub Oliver-Bear Lavelle , of 8th Bebington Beaver pack, was proud to receive his Blue Peter Sports badge for trying soft archery.

If you attend Scouts or Guides, ask your leader if you can try archery to earn your badge!
