BH Blazer Participation Points and Awards

Athletes at Balmoral Hall School earn participation points for any athletic activity. Their points accumulate from Middle and Senior School to earn crests and plaques. The awards start with a small BH crest and work up to the Honour of Distinction plaque. The crests can be seen on the girls’ BH sweater. Major sports such as volleyball, soccer and basketball are worth three points, whereas minor sports such as badminton, curling, track, and interhouse are worth one. Students that are involved in coaching, managing or refereeing a team also earn points. The crests and plaques are awarded annually at the BH Blazers Athletic Banquet in May.
