What are the benefits for children?...
So what are you getting from your investment of sending your child to coached badminton sessions?
From our experience, we have found that a badminton training session is sometimes the first time during the week where some children or young people feel they are seen in a positive light, where they are given feedback that builds their self-esteem, where they can be expected to push themselves past all their previous expectations and find they excel!
We have seen children who develop not only badminton skills but build attitudes to discipline, effort and achievement that have a knock on effect outside of the sport. Many children who find sport a real challenge but through the support of a club /coach , they are able to discover leadership and communication skills, and contribute to help and support others. They are given significance, and recognition for all their many strengths displayed throughout club/coached activities.
There are many children who find school difficult, or may have personal issues and through the sporting experience of Badminton find ways to change old behaviour patterns and become extremely high achievers.
