  • Great Numbers Drive Opening National Squad Session

    31/10/2018 Great Numbers Drive Opening National Squad Session

    With over 130 people registering for the National Squads it was a busy day in the Sport Ireland National Indoor Arena. There was U13, U15, U17 U19/Senior, Masters (pictured in header photo) and Para Squads (pictured in header photo) in attendance. Players travelled from across all four provinces to participate in the opening squad, which was a trial session. At the start of each of the squad trial sessions, first the underage players had to take the beep test. Everyone recorded their beep test score on a sheet and handed it into the coaches who were overseeing the line that had to be hit each time. After the beep test had finished the players went into matches which the coaches were coordinating.

    A huge thank you to all of the coaches who volunteer for each of their squads and well done to all of the players who travelled from across the country and made the day such a great success. 

    We also wish the Para-Badminton Squad all the best as they put in some last preparation at the National Squads for their upcoming European Championships in France.

HP Overview

The Badminton Ireland High Performance structure is designed to deliver talented and committed individuals the opportunity to fulfil their potential. We aim to achieve this by providing them with support both on court and off court in conjunction with the Irish Institute of Sport.
The Athlete Talent Pathway comprises of entry level ‘talent identification tools’ and ‘talent identification camps’ under the Teicnic programme (www.Teicnic.com).
This feeds in to the Irish National Squads and the High Performance athlete talent pathway which is comprised of those players who are focused on the Olympics (Talend funded).

The High Performance programme is led by the Performance Director who oversees the performance coaching team. The Badminton Ireland High Performance Management Group takes a collective decision around selections and high performance structure.
