Junior County Squads
NEWBA currently has one Junior Squad, which is a Badminton Wales Satellite Centre. Here we provide
additional, more focused coaching to players outside of the club environment.
Being a Badminton Wales Satellite Centre means we form the link between clubs and the Badminton Wales Regional Academy structure.
Venue: Deeside Leisure Centre, Chester Road West, Queensferry, Flintshire, CH5 1SA
Session Content: Sessions will be based around the “Game, play, learn” approach, where players
will be involved in a game based activity which will be designed to focus on a specific technical
and/or tactical part of the game, this allows the players to explore and discover solutions to
performance problems. Technical and tactical interventions from the coach may be implemented
depending on the player’s skill level and development. An individual league (singles and doubles) will
be introduced as part of the County Squad sessions to provide more regular competitive play and
allow coaches to assess each player’s development throughout the season.
