Tahiti involved in New Zealand Junior Performance Camp

Last week four players and one coach from Tahiti took part in Badminton New Zealand's Junior High Performance Camp.  They joined a team of coaches, U19 and U15 players for the annual 8 day camp held at Napier's Pettigrew Green Arena.

The schedule invovled on court sessions including multi-feeding, category training in each discipline, individual sessions, technical footwork, and feedback from World Junior Championships 2015.  There were also external speakers delivering planning, sport psychology, motivational, body weight and a cultural 'haka' session.

The Tahitian team were also put through their paces with a series of testing.

The next Player Development opportunity is a Pacific Player Development Camp in Auckland on 13/14 February for all athletes and coaches prior to Oceania Team Championships.
