BADMINTON England is on a mission to put the ‘cool’ back into the ‘after school’ delivery of badminton when we launch a brand new programme of highly social badminton game play aimed at engaging the 13-16 year old market.
Research has shown that a number of school children we have spoken to perceive badminton to be ‘a bit old fashioned’ and ‘something older people play’ – not quite the image the fastest racket sport on the planet warrants or deserves!
So, BADMINTON England want to take this perception, shake then shatter it and make after-school badminton something the pupils enjoy swinging a racket at by putting the focus on fun and friends rather than traditional skills development or PE–style delivery.
We are on the hunt for enthusiastic, engaging ‘activators’ who know how to motivate and interact with non-sporty school kids to host and lead all new branded in-school sessions that feature:
We are seeking people to put themselves forward to join the 'Activator' database and, once accepted, form a pool of 'endorsed Activators' that will then have the opportunity to be deployed into schools around the Country!
BADMINTON England cannot give guarantees of employment as we will not be directly employing 'activators' but will be seeking to forge local relationships and coordinate placement into participating schools.
If you’re interested in this role please ensure you can fulfil the following –
