The partnership between Working with Parents in Sport and Badminton England continues to go from strength to strength.

Currently entering its third year, the partnership has seen a number of workshops delivered to Junior Programme management, coaches and parents through both live and virtual events.

This year will see parents and coaches engaged with the Junior Performance Programme be provided access to a customised WWPIS and Badminton England portal.

The portal is world leading in this space with contributions from expert practitioners, guest bloggers, sports psychologists, well-being practitioners, coaches, sports parents, as well as the team at WWPIS helping to provide authentic content to support the knowledge and relationships between the organisation, coaches, parents, and young athletes.

Gordon MacLelland, CEO of WWPIS, said: “We are proud of the impact this partnership has had to date and are looking forward to moving this on further over the next 12 months.

“During the workshop sessions to date there have been some fantastic and honest conversations with the parents throughout the age groups and this has helped tailor the support that we are able to give them. The portal will continue to strengthen the relationships between all involved in the pathway programme.

Badminton England Programme Manager Nikki Tarrant added: “We are excited to continue our partnership with WWPIS for another year and expanding on the provision of support available in this space.

“Workshops have been well received across the Programme and have given the opportunity for all groups engaged in these, to discuss, challenge and reflect on some of the key topics that crop up when having a talented young individual competing within Performance Pathway.

“We are committed to continuing to support individuals as best we can on their journey and this is an example of that, which includes the key support network that surrounds these young players.”
