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 coaches for our Junior Rep program for the four age groups (Under 13, Under 15, Under 17 and Under 19).  The lead coaches are all paid positions, assistant and trainee coaches if required, may also be appointed at the discretion of BC.

  • To advise the junior convenor of any individuals that are attending training so that they can be appropriately invoiced for the training block.
  • Team selection in conjunction with appointed Selectors
  • To run a fitness session such as the beep test (as a base measure at the start of the season) for selection purposes. The results are to be shared amongst selectors
  • To ensure attendance register for pre-season and junior squad training is kept up to date. This is to assist with team selection – not used for invoicing for training.
