Boast Your Badges!

Displaying your ISI test badges is a great way to track your skating progress and wear it proudly. ISI members and their parents are known for their creativity, and their badge displays are no exception. Here are some of the ways they are showing off their growing collections.

Jada Bowers displays her Tot 1-4 badges on the unicorn stuffed animal that she received as a good-luck charm for her first competition. The legs of the unicorn work perfectly for the badges, and when she reaches Pre-Alpha through Delta, the badges will be placed along the sides as a saddle and on the neck. Her unicorn’s fabric harness works perfectly for her favorite pins.

Rachael Lund is proud of the badge banner that her mom created. She takes it with her to competitions, where her mother, Corrine, accepts custom orders from skaters and clubs.

Kat Bugarin displays her badges on a fleece throw that she takes to competitions to protect her costume from the benches and keep her warm while she’s waiting for her event. Her mother sews her test badges onto the throw in a solid group with the edges aligned, and her competition patches in another, looser, grouping.

Alley Bugarin uses her Zuca bag to show off her ISI achievements and experiences. Rather than stitching directly to the Zuca insert, her mother made fabric “banners” as backdrops for her collection. Her ISI badges are on the banner that ties to the handle and dangles over the front, and her competition patches are sewn on the banner that slips under the handle and drapes over both sides. Alley ’s Zuca bag is a personalized one-of-a-kind!
