Scotstoun Badminton Club - Learn through Sport

Developing coaches as well as players
I was impressed that the qualification now appears on my SQA certificate like all my other exams!

Not everyone has the talent or desire to play competitively, and coaching is a great way to stay involved.  Thanks to Glasgow Sports Coach and Officials fund we were able to support Anna, Erin, and Gregor as young developing coaches through their Level 1 Coaching Award. Together, the impact these young people have had on the club is immense.

All of them have grown personally from coaching and are confident and capable of working with groups of players, managing parents expectations, handling the unexpected and helping out as needed.

The coaches enjoy the friendships they make at the club with the other coaches and the players, Anna works with our Minis’s (6-9yrs) and she says, ‘they sure keep her amused’.

Gregor enjoys working with the older players and Erin, formerly a top junior player enjoys working with the girls to improve their skills.
