In each session the juniors will be divided into groups of players of a similar standard, with separate coaching and play organised for each group. We concentrate on teaching the basic movement and racket skills through shot practice and routines as well as matchplay and tactics. At each session there will generally be 3 coaches; Christine Crossley, Andrew Crossley and Doug Green. We are all qualified coaches registered with Badminton England and are CRB checked.
Godalming Badminton Club have two regular coaches for the junior club.
- Christine Crossley - BADMINTON England Registered coach part 2, and,
- Doug Green - BADMINTON England Registered coach level 2.
- Andrew Crossley - BADMINTON England registered coach Level 1.
Andrew is the latest addition to the coaching team, up to date with the latest coaching theory.
Christine has been the club’s head coach since the junior club was reinstated in 2001. Christine is an England "Masters" international. She has numerous national and international masters titles to her name.
Doug is an ex-county player and recent recruit to the masters county scene. He has been coaching juniors at Godalming for several years. He is also the club's "coaching development officer" - contact Doug if you are interested in becoming a coach or helping with the junior sessions.
Any one else out there? You may see a couple of other club members helping with the juniors when work and time permit. We can always use more help with the juniors so any parents that want to get involved just let us know. Administration is always a chore we will be glad to pass on. For the parent players we can arrange training for you to get a level 1 “assistant coach” award.
