Young Badminton Athletes Training Scheme invites application


Youngsters aged 8 to 13 possessing basic badminton skills but have not received training from Hong Kong Badminton Association's Junior Squad are invited to enrol in the Young Badminton Athletes Training Scheme jointly organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and the Hong Kong Badminton Association (HKBA).

An LCSD spokesman said, "The Young Badminton Athletes Training Scheme aims to promote young people's interest in the sport. Participants will receive systematic training. Those with potentials will be referred to the HKBA for further training."

" The Young Badminton Athletes Training Scheme has been well-received by youngsters since it was launched in 1999. With applications far exceeding quotas, trainees were keen to learn and up to 2001/02, 78 of them have been were referred to the HKBA for further training."

Recruitment is in progress for young people aged between 8 and 13. Young people aged between 8 to 10 may enrol for Division A and those aged between 11 to 13 may enrol for Division B.

The training comprises eight phrases in four stages. The fee for successful applicants ranges from $59 to $118 per phrases. The deadline for application is January 30, 2003.

Trainees have to pass an assessment at the end of each stage before being promoted to the next higher stage. Stage one will polish trainees' basic skills in badminton. Stage two will intensify training in skills and techniques in competitions. Stage three will emphasis singles tactics and introduce doubles techniques. Stage four will further enhance singles techniques and doubles tactics.

Applicants have to pass screening tests before training commences. Training will be provided by experienced coaches of the HKBA at the LCSD's sports centres.

Application forms and leaflets are now available at all LCSD's District Leisure Services Offices and the HKBA (Room 2005, Sport House, 1 Stadium Path, So Kon Po, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong).

For enquiries, please call 2309 1181.
