On 24th October 2013, in conjunction with Christie Thompson (the 5x60 officer for Mountain Ash), a Leadership Award in Badminton course was delivered in Abercynon Leisure Centre for 20 young people. The 20 young people ranged from year 9-13 from high schools across RCT including Pontypridd High, Ferndale High, St Johns High, Blaengwawr High, Tonyrefail High, Mountain Ash High and Aberdare High.
All candidates were trained in all three modules which included communication, planning and badminton. The day included fun activities along with a theory element which gives the candidates the skills and knowledge required to lead a badminton session. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all. All candidates will now use the skills acquired on the course at the upcoming RCT 5x60 competition on the 20th November at Michael Sobell Leisure Centre and also at 5x60 sessions run in the schools.
