  • Coaches Conference 2019 Ends but the Sharing of Knowledge Only Begins...

    11/08/2019 Coaches Conference 2019 Ends but the Sharing of Knowledge Only Begins...

    Coaches, players and members travelled from across the four provinces of Ireland to attend the 2019 annual Coaches Conference. This year’s conference saw a great mix of adults, juveniles, coaches and players with one of the biggest ever attendances. There were over 70 participants that attended over the course of the two days.

    Over the weekend there were a number of highlights across a variety of exciting topics. A big thanks must go to all of the speakers/guests: Andy Stewart, Daniel Magee, Conor Fadian, Fiach Andrews, Nhat Nguyen and Fathurrahman Fauzi who shared some great insights both on and off the court as they challenged and inspired the members through the pieces they delivered.

    Some of the sessions delivered included: Singles and Doubles Masterclasses, Physical Training for Badminton, Youth Development, On-Court Physical Sessions, Coach Mentoring, Teicnic Badminton, Development Updates and many more. It was great to see everyone getting involved and sharing knowledge with each other throughout the course of the weekend.

    Participants were very active on-court and got to take part in some physical, tactical and technical exercises. In the classroom sessions, the coaches and players got the chance to ask some questions and get information that might then assist them back in their clubs or settings. Participants also got the chance to update their current Teicinic Badminton Level and experience some of the material in practice.

    We would like to say a big thanks to everyone else who was working behind the scenes including Jade Plunkett, Lauren Au, Kim Feehily and Greg Farrell. The weekend couldn't have run as smoothly without their help.

    We would lastly like to massive thanks to all of our members, coaches and players who attended and engaged really well throughout the Conference exchanging knowledge and ideas with each other during the sessions.

     

     

     

    "Great weekend for getting some new ideas and information to bring back to the club for the upcoming season" - Graham MacMullen (Sligo City BC, Connacht). 

    "It was a fantastic weekend. The sessions were fun and engaging with a combination of both on-court and off-court activities" Patrick Marks (Roscrea BC, Munster).

    "It was great to pick up some new exercises and practices to use in the club during the new season" - Jonathan Perry (Greenwell Street Presbyterian BC, Ulster)

    "The weekend was super, it was great to be able to collaborate and make a connection with so many different coaches from around Ireland" - Sumesh Tharian (Mount Pleasant BC, Leinster).

    We look forward to welcoming members back next year and wish everyone the best of luck in the new season!

  • New Teicnic, New Skills, New Talent

    27/08/2018 New Teicnic, New Skills, New Talent

    It has been an amazing couple of weeks in Marino Institute of Education as our U13 and U15 Teicnic Badminton Summer Camps came to a close last week.

    This year's camps were once again held in the Irish National Training Centre. Both weeks of the camps were packed with badminton, outdoor activities, guest coaches and on-site activities. The camps were led by some of Ireland's top National Coaches and some of the Talent Squad players were there for both weeks sharing their knowledge/skills with the players.

    On both of the camps the players trained throughout the day with both on court and off court activities. After some of the on-court sessions players had the chance to go outside and take part in football, GAA, volleyball, athletics and other sports. During the camps, players were lucky enough to be able to watch the High-Performance Team training in the mornings and even get down and get some pictures and a hit with them before the day started. Thanks to Sam Magee for donating a few of his shirts to give out to the campers of the week over the camps.

    Well done to all of the players who were assessed in the Teicnic Badminton programme and progressed on their current level, receiving their T-shirt at the end of each week. Also well done to the campers of the week on each camp who were the players who gave all around the best effort both on and off court to progress and assist the coaches in any way they could.

     

    U13

    Male Camper of the Week - Alan Doyle (Portarlington Parochial)

    Female Camper of the Week - Michelle Shochan (Whitehall Road Junior Badminton Club)

    U15 

    Male Camper of the Week - Eddie Barry (Whitehall Road Junior Badminton Club)

    Female Camper of the Week - Amy Lewis (Naas Junior Badminton Club)

     

    A big thanks to Fiach Andrews, Sarah O'Donoghue and Conor Doherty who came over the camps to deliver GAA, Soccer and Volleyball for the participants in the evenings. Also a big thanks to Marino Institute of Education, Guest Coach Andrew Stewart from Wales, all of the coaches who led and assisted with the camps and to the Talent Group Players who assisted over the camps. Lastly a big thank you to Kim Feehily for putting together some great footage and videos over the past number of weeks.

    For the photos from the camps please go to our Facebook Page and into the photos section.

    We look forward to welcoming everyone back next year!
