Low cost, high quality group badminton lessons in schools around Winnipeg and other rural communities. Develop the fundamental movement mechanics required to become a better badminton player and find more enjoyment out of the game.  

October to March

Grades 3-12

 

Parents are needed to fill assistant coach positions.  Parent Assistant Coaches (PACs) must attend a coach training session in late September, as well as complete their online Respect in Sport course.  To become a Parent Coach, please contact Provincial Coach Justin Friesen at justin@badminton.mb.ca

 

Optional League Play

Players in DWP will benefit from the opportunity to take part in a soft competition, which is an introduction to competition without the pressure of prizes and placements. Athletes will get to attend one of four soft competition dates throughout the season.  Players must register with their coach in order to participate.  Players are required to attend the sessions that they are registered for.

Whereas the DWP weekly sessions are primarily for skill development and not for game play, at the League Play players will be mixed into pools with players from different programs in an opportunity to play some actual badminton matches.   This league gives athletes the opportunity to put their skills to practice.  League play will consist of the following dates throughout this season:

  • Saturday October 21st - 9:00am - 4:00pm @ College Louis Riel (585 St Jean Baptiste)
  • Sunday December 3rd - 9:00am - 4:00pm @ Rady JCC (123 Doncaster St)
  • Saturday January 20th - 9:00am - 4:00pm @ College Louis Riel (585 St Jean Baptiste)
  • Saturday February 17th - 9:00am - 4:00pm @ College Louis Riel (585 St Jean Baptiste)

Please note the following:

  • Sessions may be cancelled due to special events occuring in the host school.  Coaches will contact students via EMAIL as soon as they receive notice from the school division.  Please ensure your coach has your proper email address.
  • Any cancelled sessions will not be made up at other times
  • The MBA may cancel and/or move a program due to low number of registrations. Parents/players will be notified via email so please be sure to make your email legible
