General Club Information

We are a junior badminton training club for ages 6 to 18 operating out of the gyms of John Fraser Secondary School on Wednesday nights and Saturdays.  Our badminton season runs from the end of September through April.

Our programs are divided into groups by age, not by skill level.  There is coaching (skills, drills & games) on Saturday but no coaching on Wednesday Ladder (games only).  Wednesday Ladder gives our members the opportunity to play up the ladder against members at the same level … 3 games per Wednesday.  Two volunteer parents coordinate these games.

Our club is a volunteer driven non-profit organization in our 55th year of operation with qualified NCCP trained unpaid volunteer coaches  therefore volunteering is a condition of membership … parent and or child (i.e. school volunteer hours).  Volunteering is very flexible.  A few examples … with the Ladder program the time commitment would be 2 hours once every 5 weeks; setting up or scoring at one of our two annual tournaments for a morning or afternoon; assisting the coaches with drills; etc. … your choice.

Our registration for next season begins in late April after pre-registration for our members closes.  Details will be posted on our website in News when registration is open to the general public.  Registration forms will be found under Resources at that time and BOTH forms must be filled out and submitted to register.  Mailing address can be found at the top of the forms.
