Badminton Alberta Jr. Provincial Championships


Congratulations to all of our athletes that attended Badminton Alberta’s Jr. Provincial Championship in Olds, Alberta this past weekend. Our team has trained very hard all season and the Coaching Team is extremely proud of all our athlete’s performances throughout the weekend. There were some great wins and tough losses for our team. Our team showed tremendous strength, perseverance, and sportsmanship. We still have much room to grow and are certain that there are many more successes to come as our athletes continue to strive for their best.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the parents, family, and friends of our players for all of their support throughout the season. Between the numerous trips to the Club for practice, the rides to tournaments near and far, and entire weekends spent on the badminton courts, we are forever grateful for your support of our young athletes as they strive to reach their goals.
 
Thank you to our amazing Coaching Team for all of your time and dedication to helping our athletes succeed. We are extremely fortunate to have Sam Kim and Nathan Osborne on our Coaching Team. Thanks also to some of our high performance players, Abby Ledda, Kris Shenoy, and Jordan Tao, who have helped to spar with our juniors leading up to competition. All of your efforts are greatly appreciated and have helped lead our players to many successes both on and off the court.
 
As our programs continue to grow here at the RGC, we are extremely happy to have the support of all of our Members and families at the Club as we work to build one of the best programs in the country. We look forward to many more exciting years to come!
