"Understanding that we are all still navigating through COVID-19, Badminton Canada is very pleased to see our clubs, provinces, events and programs return to some normalcy this fall" said Sport Operations Manager, Mike Luck. "With some of our events and high-performance programs taking a break in 2021, we plan to be back in 2022 at all levels."
"Badminton Canada is also pleased to announce the addition of a Next Gen Team to our high-performance program. After review this past year, BCan has identified a gap in our high-performance athlete development pathway as athletes transition from the junior to the senior and international levels. Athletes selected for the team will recieve targeted support from Badminton Canada in terms of education, guidance, sponsorship and some financial support."
With the Badminton Canada High-Peformance Committee finalizing team selections, the 2022 Next Gen Team will be announced in the coming weeks; with benefits starting as early as February 2022!
