The first Shuttle Time course in South Wales was completed at Ysgol Glan Taf Cardiff on the 4th of May. The course consisted of 11 participants ranging from Primary and Secondary school teachers,local club coaches and University students.The mix of participants provided the course with some valuable insight to how the Shuttle Time program can be adpated in many different ways.

The teachers and coaches were put through their paces by participating and completing numerous tasks and fun activities that the Shuttle Time program has to offer.The course focus is the delivery aspect of Shuttle Time, the theory side is minimal designed to enable teachers and coaches more time working with children. The resources make this this possible by having 22 session plans mapped out with accompanying videos via its extensive online and mobile app resources.  .

All of the activities within the initiative are fun based activities starting with balloon games to help build the confidence of the children participating.

All 11 participants thoroughly enjoyed the course and are now able to deliver Shuttle Time within their school or club environment.  Tutor Donal O'Halloran commented that "The course was excellent with the all participants showing an incredible appetite and enthusiasm for the Shuttle Time initiative.Those with no badminton experience were able to deliver sessions with good technical instruction, and a lot of fun too.Those with badminton knowledge were able to focus on delivering at an appropriate level to young people who have no experience of the game. Congratulations to all who attended and we look forward to seeing you delivering your sessions and posting your experience within the Shuttle Time Wales Community via Facebook.
