Glasgow School of Sport’s Badminton Programme supports and assists pupils’ development in technical, tactical and physical aspects of badminton. This is achieved through individual and group training sessions during curricular time, before and after school hours. Training is aimed around providing players with an opportunity to achieve excellence and work through a pathway of representation starting with Area Teams, National Teams and International competitions.
Long-term, players will aim for inclusion into the sportscotland Institute of Sport (West) as part of BadmintonScotland’s Junior and Senior Performance Programme and eventually join the Scottish Institute of Sport. Training programmes are based on four key areas; Stroke Production, Specific Badminton Movement, Tactical Awareness and Physical aspects (Specific and Generic). As players move through years 1 – 6 the demands of each are adjusted to support development of each individual player.
The School of Sport Badminton Programme is supplemented with individual and team competition programmes at local, national and international events. In addition to the competition programme, players have access to support in Psychology, Nutrition, and Sports Science and undergo regular fitness testing to monitor and evaluate each individual player’s progression. Regular training camps also provide a chance for players to work on specific areas during the year to ensure maximum gains from the periodic training programmes.
The overall badminton programme has led to an experienced team of coaches providing quality planned sessions to facilitate excellent opportunities maximising the potential of players in the
School of Sport.
