Online SDP Testing

April 28, 2020 - The CBTF Education Committee and Sara Mougeot, CBTF SDP Rep, are pleased to share this information on the Online SDP Testing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Online SDP Testing will begin on May 1 - Testing video must be submitted using the website:

SDP Testing via video submission is already a program that CBTF has in place for areas that do not have easy access to an Adjudicator for in-person testing. For the period of May 1 to August 31, 2020, this is being expanded to include all of our CBTF athletes! This program will run nationally through the CBTF SDP Rep. Sara has put together a pool of Adjudicators who have most generously donated their time to adjudicate these tests via video, so that there will be no charge to the athletes for the testing - please note: if the athlete wishes to purchase the badge or pin that they have earned, they will be responsible for covering those expenses - see attached for details.  The CBTF extends its thanks to those Adjudicators who have volunteered to do this for our athletes during this uncertain time.

Please read through the attached information - it explains the online testing program and processes in detail. There is an overview, which includes an explanation of how the video should be prepared, as well as scripts that the athlete and their prompter should follow on their video. If you have questions, please connect with your Provincial SDP Rep, who will be able to reach out to Sara as CBTF SDP Rep.

If you need the SDP Manual, which describes in detail all of the skills in each Badge/Pin of the SDP Program, it can be purchased from the CBTF Store. This is licensed material and cannot be distributed or posted. There are two packages available:

  • SDP Starter Set: This includes all levels from the White Ribbon through the Maroon Badge.
  • SDP Full Package: All badges and pins, from the White Ribbon through the Diamond Pin. The Full Package was updated in October 2017 to include changes to Bronze Pin, Silver Pin, Gold Pin, Bronze 2Baton Specialty Badge, and the Silver 2Baton Specialty Badge.

The CBTF Education Committee and Sara want to thank all of the coaches, Adjudicators and athletes, for for all that you are doing during this unprecedented time. We hope that you are able to take advantage of this program and that the athletes will enjoy working on the badges and pins of the SDP.
