ACTBA “Shuttle Time” Course for ACT PE teachers a hit!

The Association delivered the “Shuttle Time Teachers Reduced Course” to teachers at Melba Copland Secondary School in Term 4. As the course is a TQI Accredited professional learning program, teachers could claim attendance towards their professional development.
 
19 teachers from 5 ACT schools attended the course. Teachers had little knowledge of the sport but were eager to learn and play. Shuttle Time materials such as the App and video clips were a “hit” as they were readily accessible and gave teachers the “Know How” to plan and deliver badminton lessons.
 
The Association wishes to thank Melba Copland Secondary School for the use of their gymnasium and their coordination with other schools.

The 2020 AGM was held at Kaleen High School on 13 December, with a large number of affiliated clubs represented.  One key outcome was agreement for a paid (on a casual, contract basis), Junior Development Officer/Pathway Manager position that draws together all of the great work being undertaken on junior development/coaching in many ACTBA clubs and schools.  Indeed, on the latter, 15 school PE teachers were trained in ‘Shuttle Time’ over recent weeks to enable even more teachers to coach basic badminton at their schools.

  • Aspire Badminton Club

    Aspire Badminton Club sessions at CGS school hall will be closed for the remainder of 2020 due to the School's decision not to accept community hirers of their sports hall. Sessions at Kaleen will continue.
  • Canberra Grammar Badminton Club

    CGS Badminton Club will be closed for the remainder of 2020 due to the School's decision not to accept community hirers of their sports hall.
  • Gungahlin Badminton Club

    The Gungahlin Badminton Club (GBC) has transferred management for the Tuesday session at Gungahlin College to the new Young Dragon Badminton Club.

    Due to exceptional demand to play badminton and the lack of suitable and available venues, the GBC was simply inundated with people wishing to join the club in 2021. The initial limit of 65 members was filled during the very first session of the year and there is already a Wait List comprising yet another 60 people wishing to join. While a few more people may be allowed to join over the coming weeks once we see the numbers attending each session, it is highly unlikely that all the people currently on the Wait List will be offered membership during the year. As such, along with membership of the club, the Wait List is now also closed to avoid disappointment. A notice will be placed here were either to reopen.

    I would suggest that people interested in playing badminton in Canberra lobby your local politicians for more indoor sports centres (as the ACTBA is doing).

    First session for 2021 on Monday, 11 January.
    Last session for 2021 on Thursday, 16 December

    Sessions Fees are now:
    $5.10 for Members
    $15.30 for Non-Members
    (incl. 'Square' 2 per cent commission)

    $51/year for men
    $30.60/year for women and students
