2020 is set to be an exciting year for our juniors with some new tournaments, the Mainland Champs getting more popular, and of course the Nationals to aim towards!  Badminton Canterbury need to appoint selectors and coaches for our Junior program.

We require two independent selectors to work as volunteers (the third is the team coach) for Under 13 and Under 15, with a different two for the Under 17 and Under 19 age groups.  The third selector is the relevant team coach.  The Selectors will be decided by the Junior Convenor and BC

The Selectors will be required to:

  • Be aware of and adhere to the selection criteria
  • Have open lines of communication amongst each other.
  • Ensure players are held accountable to selection criteria and any approval of variances are agreed amongst yourselves and reported to the Junior Convenor for recording purposes
  • To track players performances at tournaments and interclub
  • Liaise with the junior convener and office as to the number of teams to be selected

The Selectors will be required to attend the relevant BC Regional Coaching days (16th February, March 29th, May 10th and August 9th) and the Junior Super Series Tournament (8th March, 28th June, 13th September) to observe players.
