In our wide range of practice groups, there are groups for the youngest members of the family as well, all the way to 4-year-olds. Here we present Family Badminton (Perhesulkis), Mini Badminton (Minisulkis) and Mini Aces (Miniässät) groups. Check out also our other group offerings here and sign up!
Family Badminton (Perhesulkis): Start a awesome hobby together with your 4-6-year-old child!
Family Badminton is a great way for children under school age to get to know badminton and basic sports skills together with a parent. For parents, Family Badminton offers a light sports moment and time together with the child. Family Badminton is on duty every Thursday at 16:30-17:30, coached by multiple Finnish doubles champion Sonja Pekkola!
Mini Badminton (Minisulkis): Basics of badminton through fun games and playing!
In Mini Badminton, the child gets to already get involved in independent hobby with the help of other peers and excellent coaches. In Mini Badminton, kids practice real badminton, but through play-like exercises. Depending on the level of the group, during the season we can also get to a level where kids get to play "real" matches. The goal of Mini Badminton is to get excited about the sport and get a good base from which they can try harder groups in the future. The Mini Badminton practices are on Mondays from 17:00 to 18:00, and the current women's singles Finnish champion Nella Siilasmaa is the head coach of the group, and two of our club's top juniors, Annika Vokkolainen and Jesse Siilasmaa, are assistant coaches!
If the child already hits the shuttle fairly well and is immediately excited to develop and play in trainings, we recommend to come and try Mini Aces (Miniässät) groups. Miniässät has a lot of Mini Badminton players from previous years. In the Miniässät groups we train and practice skills a little more compared to the Minisulkis group, but still through fun playfulness. The groups are aimed at 8-11 year olds, but 6-year-olds have also participated in the groups. Our club offers Miniässät groups on Mondays from 17:30 to 19:00, Wednesdays from 16:30 to 17:30 and Thursdays from 16:30 to 17:30. Come and try it out! The coaches can also help the child to find the best group for them.
