On Thursday, March 7, CECSS held its inaugural drop-in badminton for Gr.3-5 kids at Courtenay Elementary. A total of 14 kids showed up for an hour and a half of fun and exercise.

Badminton started off with some serving and footwork practice, followed by a challenge to the kids to try and serve their shuttles into a small bucket. Some of them managed to do it on their first try!

After some rallying with their partners and "Coach" Shawn, the highlight for the kids was playing dodgeball in which the kids dodged shuttles smashed at them. It didn't take the kids long to figure out that they could all win by huddling close to the net but "Coach" Shawn foiled their efforts with soft drop shots.

The kids were pretty tired after 90 minutes of constantly moving, but there were plenty of smiles to be had. CECSS hopes to make this a weekly event after spring break.
