This award recognizes the many hours of service performed by Gymnastics Ontario members to organize and run the many programs and services offered for our athletes. This recognition is in the form of lapel pins, which have been designed to reflect service in 5-year increments ranging from 5 to 25-plus years.
A member who has served gymnastics in Ontario will be presented with a specially designed pin based on the following years of service completed:
