At the STBA we offer many junior programs throughout the year for junior players of all levels and abilities. These programs are aimed at providing junior players with fun opportunities to play badminton and also facilitate their growth and development.
The programs currently run by the STBA are:
2023 STBA Junior Championships
STBA is pleased to announce we are holding the annual STBA Junior Championships 2023 on Saturday 9th December. This is the final badminton event of the year and a culmination of all the training and junior based rosters being ran at STBA throughout the year. This is the perfect entry level tournament for our junior players who have not played in a tournament previously and want to experience the atmosphere, as well as the players that may want to challenge themselves. Registrations are now open and will close on the 3rd December click here for more details.
School Holiday Clinics
An opportunity for juniors to participate in a 3-day program to develop their game through expert coaching. Registrations are open four our January 2024 holiday clinics, click here for more details.
Beginner and Intermediate Coaching Programs & Super Smash Program (Junior Roster)
Each term the STBA runs both a Junior Coaching program and the Super Smash Junior Roster on a Saturday afternoon.
The junior coaching program is a 1-hour coaching program for beginner and intermediate players. Throughout the coaching program, players will learn to improve their badminton skills, shots, technique, fitness, footwork and strategy.
The Super Smash Program is the ultimate way for kids to develop their game and play badminton in a challenging, fun, teams and supportive environment. Simply put, the Super Smash Program is a roster competition that juniors participate in directly after the coaching program.
Registrations are now open for Term 3 Super Smash and Junior Coaching. Click here for details.
