Juniors

Bay of Quinte Badminton Club (BQBC)

The junior program has begun for the 2022-2023 season.

Due to high demand we will be capping junior membership at 35 players. There are a few spots remaining so join soon.

Practice Details

Our practices are on Sundays 5:30-7:30PM at Centennial SS beginning September 11th.

Our Vision

The motivation for the BQBC is to introduce young athletes to the sport of
badminton and to develop their skills so that they can compete at district
tournaments.  Our challenge is to develop athletes to be able to compete at the
Provincial level and beyond.

Maturity Requirements

The BQBC accepts players up to the age of 19.  Players 9 years of age and under are required to have parent or guardian present at all sessions they attend.

Practices require completion of drills and a focus on a particular skill.  In spite of
our goal for skill improvement, we recognize the need for our players to simply
have some fun, some competition and to enjoy the company of friends and peers.  Parents are welcome to be spectators at practice.  Sometimes they will be called upon to assist, but generally their assistance will be with children other than their own.

Our Season and Tournaments

The season runs from our 1st practice on Sunday September 11 to the
middle of April.

Tournament information for the Junior program will be coming soon.

Cost and Expenses

The cost to join the Club for the season is $85.00 per athlete.  Protective eye wear (which means goggles, safety glasses or shatter-proof glasses.) and non marking shoes is required.  You will want to have your own personal racquet.  The club does have some racquets if you do not have your own.  Regular gym attire is apropriate.

Entry into tournaments is voluntary but participation is recommended as a method to improve your badminton and competitive skills.  The cost of a tournament generally ranges from $30.00 upwards to $40.00.  Some BQBC members enter several tournaments each year
