Chief denies coach crisis
Junior badminton is not in shambles.
President of the Barbados Badminton Association (BBA) Paul Sealy said that far from that being the case, the programme was operating with a full complement of qualified coaches who are assisted by national senior players.
Sealy was responding to a NATIONSPORT article which revealed that the three former national junior coaches, head coach Shakeira Waithe, Caroline Vaughan and D’Andre Thorpe, had resigned over disagreement with the BBA executive over a matter involving a junior national player.
Sources in the article alleged that the departure of the coaching trio left the junior national badminton programme without qualified coaches to train the youngsters, and that the programme was now in the hands of senior players who were not qualified. (AL-F)
