2016 Yonex Identified Player Program (IPP) Summer Camps

     

         The Manitoba Badminton Association (MBA) annually hosts summer camps for the identified athletes who are not yet involved with the High Performance or Junior High Performance Teams but show the work ethic, skill level and/or results that indicate the potential to make these teams in the future.

            The Summer Identification Camps are an Identification tool for the Identified Player Program, a program which runs from September to March to introduce grassroots badminton players to the competitive club and tournament atmosphere.

         The IPP Summer Camps can be attended by invite only or by consulting with Provincial Coach Justin Friesen at 204-228-3210 (or by email at justin@badminton.mb.ca)

Looking for a Fall/Winter Badminton Program?

Badminton is more truely a winter sport, so there are many options available:

Developmental Winter Program - 1X/week.  Many of Manitoba's top players have started out in the Developmental Winter Program because of the qualified coaches that we employ.  Athletes will learn the necessary tools to A) Enjoy the sport and B) Become better athletes.  Athletes from these programs are scouted for the Identified Player Program, a competitive program held 2X/week through the fall/winter.

Join a Club - multiple times/week.  Fast-track IPP and go straight to a club where you will have a permanent coach, ongoing support, more than 2 practices per week and other playing opportunities.  Only a competitive club can meet your needs to the fullest.
