ABOUT OUR VISION
Badminton Canada has set as a goal to fund-raise $250,000 in the next 4 years from donation alone to implement our new High Performance Plan. This represents only 25% of the overall cost of implementing the full plan. The rest of the funds will be self-generated through corporate sponsorship and other revenue sources. Badminton Canada has also made the commitment that 100% of each donation goes directly to player development.
All donors to the Vision 2020 Campaign will be recognized on the Badminton Canada Website and receive a charitable donation receipt. Donors at the Leaders Level and above will be featured through our social media campaign leading up to the 2020 Olympics. Personalized recognition will be developed in partnership with all donors at the Champions for Excellence level to inspire others to join us in this Campaign.

HIGH PERFORMANCE: THE FUTURE
Badminton Canada is rewriting the book on High Performance for badminton in Canada and identified four pillars that will uphold our vision. Those pillars are:
We believe that early engagement is essential for any successful program, to allow for positive influence and better mental and physical preparation towards a successful international badminton career.
The Junior National Team will engage in regional camps, have dedicated National Coaches working with them and monitoring them, with access to sport science and other skills development tools.
This type of engagement and early intervention has been proven in many other sports to accelerate player development and build Olympic Champions.
For the last 15 years Badminton Canada has taken equitable approach to support our Senior Team
In 2017, we will transition to a targeted approach. National Team players will be evaluated on Key Performance Indicators and measured against the best players in the world.
Those tracking towards the 2020 Olympic Games will see a greater level of support from Badminton Canada. Ensure that through our National Coaches and Integrated Support Team, all National Team athletes are getting the right type of support at the right time.
Canada is blessed to have highly trained and qualified coaches that have been developed through our coaching program or have come here from abroad.
We need to ensure our programs and athletes are exposed to their talents and knowledge towards becoming international champions. We also want to use the High Performance program to develop and encourage more coaches here in Canada.
Getting to the Olympic Games is no longer Badminton Canada’s objective, winning at the Olympic Games is. We have learned the hard way that we must provide holistic support for those athletes targeting Tokyo 2020 and future Olympic Games.
Holistic support of our athletes begins with our youngest Junior National Team players by educating and preparing them now for the rigors of an international career. When it comes to our targeted senior players, Holistic Support is a significant investment to ensure touring athletes arrive both mentally and physically prepared to win at each competition and at the Olympic Games
