PLEASE NOTE IHSA RULES: No restrictions on badminton lessons during the season!
I studied the IHSA rules and also confirmed with the IHSA that taking lessons at the SPBA during the high school badminton season does not affect IHSA eligibility. During the school year and during the badminton season any number of students from a school may participate in a sports lesson provided no coach from the school is involved in any respect and no matches are played. If a coach of an IHSA team coaches at a coaching school, no more than 2 players from the coach’s school may take lessons during the school year.


clinicThe SPBA has a variety of private and semi-private lesson times available throughout the year. Come in and perfect your technique, footwork, or strategic game! Having trouble with a specific shot or want to move up in the line-up? Our coaches can create customized lessons for you. Players can book one private lesson at a time or weekly private lessons. Players must have a membership to the SPBA to participate in group classes. Please refer to SPBASpringSession.pdf

Several Classes are available throughout the year. Players must have a membership to the SPBA to participate in group classes ($100 per individual for 2020 please see here for family pricing).
