Badminton SA headed out to Port Augusta on the 26th of August to complete school clinic at Willsden Primary School and Seaview Christian College.
Whilst in Port Augusta our Development Officer, Callum Dunk, ran a Come N Try session with the Stirling North Badminton Club at Hancock Stadium (otherwise known as 'The Furnace'). We had 15 people attend the session from a variety of age groups, it was a great night
At Willsden Primary School we worked with over 60 students across multiple year levels. At Seaview Christian College we worked with 4 classes across 2 days and worked with a variety of year levels from reception to year 8. There was a total of 67 students at Seaview Christian College.
Then we headed to Whyalla to work with the students at Long Street Primary School for 2 days (29th & 30th of August). We worked with over 250 students ranging from Reception to Year 7, teaching the basic fundamental Badminton skills.
To conclude the trip we hosted at Shuttletime Course at Seaview Christan College (Port Augusta) on the 31st of August. The course was a good way to finish the trip which lasted 6 days.
We will look to do further work with the people of Port Augusta & Whyalla in the near future!

Badminton South Australia is seeking parents and coaches to assist Flinders University researchers, Dr Sam Elliott & Professor Murray Drummond, with a pilot study regarding parental behaviour in youth sport. There is a need to better understand what factors contribute to successful parent and coach relationships in youth sport. This is important because parents and coaches strongly influence psychosocial outcomes developed through youth sport. They also impact participation in, and enjoyment of, youth sport.
Badminton South Australia is sad to announce there will be no school holiday clinics in October this year after successfully launching the school holiday program in July this year. With the Australian Masters Games this October it has been difficult to find suitable times for the clinics.
Badminton SA is extremely pleased with the support of the program since July, we understand some parents and children will be disappointed, we apologise for this; however, we are extremely eager to bring the program back over the summer. The clinics will most likely be in January next year. Make sure you frequently check the Badminton SA website and social media pages for the latest updates.
