IPE0038 - Effective Management of Badminton as a Co-curricular Activity (CCA) in Schools

  • Teachers-in-charge of co-curricular activities (CCA) play an important role in managing the CCA, as well as driving the educational and coaching aspects of the programme. Teachers need to be aware of their roles and responsibilities to possess basic skill sets and strategies in educating and coaching their players. Such an approach would be able to create a positive and safe learning environment, as well as to encourage positive social and emotional development amongst the students. Through a practical and hands-on approach, the course aims to equip teachers with these necessary skill sets.

  • Participants will be able to:

    1. Understand the role and responsibilities of a teacher/coach
    2. Understand different teaching/coaching styles
    3. Deliver effective badminton CCA sessions which would involve a wide range of teaching and coaching skills, e.g., learning styles, methods of skills development, understanding different stages of motor learning, management of practices, management of players, feeding skills, etc.
    4. Demonstrate, teach/coach technical skills (hitting/movement) and basic concepts/strategies of the game, both singles and doubles.
    5. Develop appropriate drills/movement patterns to cater for students with different ability levels during CCA training sessions
  • This is an introductory course for teachers who have no prior experience in handling and preparing CCA Badminton teams for inter-school competitions. The course aims to provide novice teachers with the necessary skill sets not only in the management of the CCA sessions but also in imparting and coaching basic technical skills of the game through a hands-on approach.
