The NTBA was able to host a Level 1A Coach Development Course over the weekend of 3-4 October in the home venue.
10 committed players joined us to learn more about how they can positively influence the level of player development across the various playing groups. The course content was delivered by Australian Level 3 Coach / Trainer Mr Rudy Bartholomeusz who flew up from Melbourne for the weekend. We thank Badminton Australia for providing his airfare and goodwill to our growth and development stream. Importantly we had two members of Alice Springs Badminton Club fly up and both members returned `pumped up’ with great ideas and benchmark standards to take them forward to train the folks down there. Very many thanks to Rudy for his marvellous delivery and insights into how we all need to approach this fantastic sport. Forty years of playing and coaching experience of which we skimmed the surface only.
