The Aboriginal Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity Partners Council of B.C. announced recently a B.C. Aboriginal Badminton Development Camp will be held in Williams Lake this weekend.
The camp will be hosted by T’exelc, Williams Lake Indian Band, on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Williams Lake Indian Band gym.
Held in partnership with Badminton B.C., the one-day skills camp is a chance for youth to learn about the sport, which is featured in the North American Indigenous Games and the Canada Winter Games.
All Aboriginal youth, ages 10 to 19, who want to learn new skills, improve on existing skills and gain quality coaching and instruction in a positive, fun and professional atmosphere, are invited to sign up.
Chris Sowden, experienced coach and multi-sport athlete, said he’s looking forward to working with as many Aboriginal athletes as possible.
There is no cost to join the camp, and T-shirts and lunch will be provided to all.
