NMBF holds free Youth Summer Clinic

Northern Marianas Badminton Federation held its first Youth Summer Clinic for enthusiasts 7 to 18 years of age to learn the proper way of playing badminton, which started on June 23 and will end on July 11 at the Gilbert C. Ada Gymnasium.
The summer badminton clinic was a three-week session for MWF morning classes from 8:30 am to 10:30 am. The youth training was free of charge as a service to the community of the federation.
According to Montoya, NMBF held its free clinic to introduce the sport of badminton in the CNMI especially to the youth and to promote a healthy lifestyle of living through physical activities and sports development.
“NMBF’s main goal is to send one or two players from the CNMI as a representative to an international badminton competition and one way that we can see in fulfilling our goal is to get athletic youngsters and train them to become a competitive player,” he added.
The lists of impressive trainors were led by Community Project and Development head Edwin Montoya, NMBF President Marconi Calindas, Tournament Committee head Macoi Aguda and 2008 Michelob Ultra Badminton Tournament Singles champ Priyantha Wijay.
The trainors were assisted by Juliet Ramos, Babes Cielo, Emily Vargas, Shirley Kim, Merlie Savellano, Ana Rose Omori and many others.
More than 30 young participants joined the training. Badminton equipment and refreshments were also provided to the trainees for free.
