Badminton For Life
Badminton for Life is a program developed under The Canadian Sport for Life movement (CS4L) and the Long Term Athlete Development model (LTAD) by FBC Director of Programs, Valerie Loker (2008 Mixed Doubles Olympian) and FBC Head Coach, Kyle Golding (former Junior National player). FBC will begin by implementing Active Start & FUNdamental, Learn to Train and Active Heart as described below with future programs to come.
Active for Life is a movement within Sport for Life in which Canadians become active for life by developing physical literacy. Along with physical literacy and sport excellence, Active for Life is one of CS4L’s three key outcomes. This stage can be entered at any age, beginning with developing physical literacy in infancy, and evolves to being Competitive for Life and/or Fit for Life through all phases of adulthood.
