Starting after Easter Break, practices will begin for the FM Christian School Junior High and Elementary badminton teams for students in grades 5-9.
Tryouts will be on Monday, April 9th (The Monday after the break.) Team practices will then be on Mondays for the following two weeks. As usual, there will be no busses to take students home after practice, so you will need to arrange for other transportation. Practices will be from after school until 3:45.
This year the district tournaments are scheduled for:
April 21 @ Anzac (Junior High)
April 28 @ Walter and Gladys Hill (Elementary)
Badminton is a bit different from the other sports at the school. All 5-9 students are welcome to come to the first practice on Monday, April 9th, but there will be tryouts that day in order to determine who is on the teams and who can go to the tournaments. Only students on the team will practice the following weeks. There are only 8 positions available to each grade so not everyone will make the team. Please ensure you can make it to your tournament before trying out.
Students should have an idea on what they hope to play before coming to tryouts, but I may move them around to make things work J
