Mentality or Mindset is the most important skill in badminton, in fact, it is more important than techniques or tactics. We want to primarily focus on mental skills to help your child find the way to self-regulation, independence and to kindness.
Right now, because of COVID-19, our children is the most affected mentally and we must help them to find their mental resources and also make them conscious about their life as it happens on the courts.
We will make sure all our staff are DBS (formerly CRB) checked and have relevant qualifications to work effectively with children and vulnerable adults.
Frank also has the latest CIMSPA ReActivate qualification and will adhere to Badminton England`s and UK Sport`s guidances.
You can test your readiness for badminton with PARQ and feel free to share it with Frank.
If you feel you are at a mentally difficult time, check out the below ones and you can discuss results with Frank for further advice. Here are the questionnaires GAD-7 and PHQ-9 which can help you map up your mental states.
