The following badminton resource, designed for High School students (aged 14-18) in the USA, aims to meet NASPE standards for badminton, specifically:
- [1, 2]: Serving, clearing, hitting drop shots, smashing, offensive and defensive team strategies
- [3, 4]: Aerobic capacity
- [5, 6]: Cooperation, accepting challenges
In ‘I Got Your Back’ the object is to work as a doubles team to score points. Do this by using a front-to-back formation. In front-to-back, 1 player is responsible for the front court, the other for the mid- and back court. The formation is offensive because it provides opportunities to use attacking shots like the drop and smash. Communicate and recover to the center of your side to maximize success and avoid faults.
