Badminton Australia is pleased to be part of the Sporting Schools strategy which closely aligns to our vision to provide widespread participation opportunities and to increase the popularity of Badminton in Australia.
Badminton is a sport with growing appeal across all age groups and demographics. The sport contributes to the social cohesiveness of Australian communities and provides a safe, healthy sport for all to enjoy. Badminton offers competitive opportunities as well as great social and health benefits, and is highly suited to junior participants at a grassroots level.
Badminton Australia is pleased to partner with Sport Australia to deliver this $200 million Australian Government initiative to get more children playing more sport.
As the national sporting organisation (NSO) for badminton, we offer schools and coaches quality programs that encourage children to participate in this great sport.
“I really can’t speak highly enough of the incredibly positive outcomes Badminton Australia helped our school and our students achieve”. Damien Taylor, Teacher Acacia Ridge State School
The Badminton Australia Product
Badminton Australia is offering the Shuttle Time program through Sporting Schools. Shuttle Time aims to help teachers and students develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to plan and deliver safe and fun badminton lessons to children and youth.
Shuttle Time can be adapted to meet individual school requirements and Badminton Australia qualified deliverers can assist schools to deliver badminton activities as part of Sporting Schools.
Teachers and coaches are our assets
Badminton Australia values the role of teachers not just in the classroom but in the school yard as well. Their enthusiasm for improving children’s lives is often understated. Society places its trust and confidence in teachers who as educators, have one of the most important roles for our children, outside of parents and carers.
Coaches are also a wonderful influence on children throughout their formative years. Coaches are the people who deliver the skills with fun and enjoyment.
The information below is a guide to how schools, coaches and sporting organisations can deliver the Badminton Australia program within Sporting Schools.
