Virtual Badminton Teacher Training

On 21st April 2021 Carlow Sports Partnership piloted Ireland’s first virtual badminton teacher training seminar in conjunction with Badminton Ireland.

The pilot was an overwhelming success with 27 teachers from 7 primary schools in Carlow in attendance. Carlow native and badminton coach, Willie Stevenson, presented a very informative seminar on the fundamentals of badminton and how it can easily become embedded in any school’s physical activity curriculum. This was followed by a presentation from Lauren Au of Badminton Ireland who demonstrated how easily badminton can be adapted to become inclusive and cater for every student.

Carlow Sports Partnership are currently organising a full teacher training day in September 2021 (Covid-19 restrictions pending) which will be open to all primary schools in Carlow to attend.
