The SPBA was given a special grant from the United States Badminton Educational Foundation to host this exciting event this year with some of the top players and coaches around. We are very fortunate to have been given this regional camp and it is not the type of event that happens often! I encourage you to take advantage of this incredible opportunity for our region.
The event will be the weekend before the start of the IHSA season and a wonderful chance to sharpen up your skills and prepare for try-outs! This is the final push before the start of the high school season.
Junior boy and girl players of all levels are welcome to join this camp. This is a USA Badminton Midwest Regional event and all clubs are welcome to participate and take advantage of this opportunity. Coaches of all levels and parents who want to learn more about helping their children grow as a badminton athlete are encouraged to do the coaching clinic. All participants must be a member of USA Badminton ($40) or have a USA Badminton junior club sticker.
