A 6 hour course geared towards educating Secondary school pupils on how to coach, how to organise festivals and how to officiate/organise competitions. Pupils who complete this are then permitted to assist in the delivery of Big Hit Festivals.
A new festival format that was first piloted on 10th May at the Cockburn Centre with 3 Renfrew schools (150 pupils over 5 courts). In comparison with the previous Play Badminton Festivals and Sportshall Challenges, the Big Hit Festivals offer additional services including parallel teacher CPD (including new resources), Young Sport Leader delivery and College/Uni student mentoring opportunities. Furthermore, the ratio of pupils to court has increased with the activities being designed to cater for maximum of 30 pupils per court.
