The NTBA Inc sup­ports the NT Sports Vouch­er Scheme and encour­ages its use for eli­gi­ble play­ers in our sport.

Shut­tle Time Sessions

Shut­tle time is a bad­minton pro­gram aimed at Pri­ma­ry and Mid­dle School stu­dents. The pro­gram focus­es on teach­ing teach­ers the basics of bad­minton so they have the knowl­edge to con­tin­ue improv­ing the bad­minton skills of their stu­dents after the Shut­tle Time pro­gram has been com­plet­ed. Please email participation@​ntbadminton.​org.​au for more details.

There are 6 courts avail­able at 21 Alba­tross St, Win­nel­lie dur­ing school hours (except for Wednes­day and Fri­day morn­ings from 9.00 – 11.00am) for those schools wish­ing to con­duct sport­ing programs.

Sport­ing Schools

The Aus­tralian Sports Com­mis­sion (ASC) has launched the new Sport­ing Schools web­site , as part of an ini­tia­tive to help strength­en the con­nec­tion between schools and sport so that all Aus­tralian chil­dren can get active and expe­ri­ence the joy of sport.

Sport­ing Schools is all about fos­ter­ing a life­long inter­est in sport among Aus­tralian children.

The NTBA Inc has joined with Bad­minton Aus­tralia to reg­is­ter as a provider under this scheme and can assist schools to engage their stu­dents in our sport. Take this link to find out more.

We are also able to deliv­er the BWF Shut­tle-Time pro­gramme using School and the Sport­ing Schools fund­ing. We cur­rent­ly have two Shut­tle Time Presen­ters (Bowen Viravong and Glo­ria Richards) and two Shut­tle Time Teach­ers (Arlene D’souza and Win­nie Wei Eng Lee) able to deliv­er this great pro­gramme when mutu­al­ly con­ve­nient times are avail­able. We expect to grow our team of Teach­ers and deliv­er these oppor­tu­ni­ties in schools or host them at our venue. More about Shut­tle-Time at this link.

From 2015, Sport­ing Schools will become Australia’s largest par­tic­i­pa­tion pro­gram for all chil­dren to fos­ter a life­long inter­est in sport. It will also fund sport­ing activ­i­ties in more than 5,700 schools and pro­vide access to a range of trained com­mu­ni­ty coaches.

Its key pur­pose is to encour­age more chil­dren to do more sport-based activ­i­ties, and empow­er schools to help them do that. Cen­tral to schools achiev­ing that out­come is the expert, enthu­si­as­tic involve­ment of sport­ing organ­i­sa­tions, clubs and coaches.

Sport­ing Schools is com­mit­ted to help­ing sport, schools and com­mu­ni­ties work clos­er than ever before to grow sport activ­i­ty in pri­ma­ry schools.
