Re-design

The Team Player badge was redesigned from a football to a soccer ball design in 1995. Doug Reid, DNC - Program postulates this was due to the fact that Scouts Canada was implementing the policy of co-ed programs and girls are less likely to play football[2]. With the new smaller badges in 2011, this was changed to a jersey to represent potentially any team sport.
