Dear Badminton Ontario community,
RE: Teachers Developing Badminton in Local Schools
As things are progressing through the pandemic, we hope that you are safe and well. We are excited as schools allow badminton to run as one of their few safe sports. As OFSAA is approaching in February 2022, we would like to begin setting goals. We plan to take action in helping the grassroots by creating a program in the schools for teachers to be able to coach their students in the sport of badminton. As part of our grassroots initiative, we are excited to get it under way with you being a part of it.
We are looking for committed teachers! You do not need any badminton background and having a sport or physical education background is preferred but we welcome all those who are interested that is on the board of education. The goal is to find someone with an interest in coaching students to play badminton and running a team at their school. We would like to pass on badminton even if it’s just in a physical education class as well or gym recreational play.
We plan to develop the sport of badminton through passing on the basics of badminton to everybody. Through virtual workshops, we will be providing the knowledge for teachers how to play as well as how to coach grassroot players. We value giving students the badminton opportunity to play and believe we can provide the opportunity for them through you.
We ask for teachers to reach out to us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your first name, last name, district, school, email, and phone number.
President of Badminton Ontario
