Juniors

Our sessions aim to coach the basics of badminton. How to hold a racket, the types of shots and to combine with footwork. We will show your children how to start a rally and enjoy the game.

We aim to keep our group numbers moderate so children can get time with the coach to challenge themselves.

Warming up

Prevention of injuries is our main focus so we begin every session with a warm-up.
We use a variety of exercises to make it enjoyable for all abilities.

Rules of the game

When the players are ready for it, we will introduce the basic rules of the game.
For every beginner, badminton feels unusual and needs time to get used to the movements, how the shuttle flies, the lights, surface of the hall.
Children need to learn how to orientate their bodies, to minimize the frustration and shame created by it.

Mentality

It takes time to become conscious of themselves on the court.
Our goal is to develop their resilience by making them conscious of their own choices on the court.

Tactics

Tactics are for having control over the opponent`s will.
The correct mindset and the right technique can elevate children to the next level where they can learn tactics.
