2015-2016 OUA Badminton Championships @ McMaster
Feb 19-21, 2016

The High Performance Team travelled to McMaster at the end of the Reading Week and competed against other universities for 3 days.

In multiple games, the difference was only a matter of a few points.

They came close to beating 2 strong teams, Waterloo and Ottawa.

Many players displayed their great skills and an undying fighting spirit.

In the end, York settled for the 7th spot, which is a drastic improvement from the past few years.

There's a lot of potential in the team for the next year.

Congratulations to the team for defeating Queen's!

YUBC's "High Performance Unit"

Posted by Lylliane Nualan on September 14, 2011

The “High Performance Unit” is a newly formed sub-group under YUBC that serves as an alternative to the former Badminton
 Varsity team.

In 2010...
If you didn't already know, this year, YorkU will not have an official Badminton
Varsity team—yet despite this sad news, I dare say, don’t lose hope yet fellow baddicts!

We at the YUBC along with our Badminton varsity friends will not let the sport die down here at York. There shall be no mourning over that spanking new Yonex
racquet you bought over the summer!

After several discussions and careful planning, the YUBC executives collaborated with previous varsity leaders to found a new "High Performance Unit" that will
 take flight this year as an alternative to the former varsity team.

The High Performance Unit will be lead by previous Varsity leaders (who are experienced and certainly qualified!) and will manage the team with certified
coaches, team captains, and head director.

What this unit aims to do is to nurture players who want to take their game at
a different level. The group does not officially represent York as a varsity
team; however, it operates similarly.

In 2015

The YorkU High Performance Badminton Team holds regular team practices, social events, and regularly participate in several local, provincial,
and intra-university tournaments. Managed and coached by experienced professional coaches, the team is highly recognized on the OUA circuit.

Interested individuals must be a YorkU student to attend tryouts.

The first try-out will be on September 18th, 2015 at Tait McKenzie Upper Gym from 6:30pm – 8:30pm.

Please be prepared to bring your YorkU card as well as another proof of identification.

Candidates must be on time and be ready to participate with proper gym attire and equipments.

So if you think you have what it takes to be a part of this awesome group, by all means, come out and spread the news around!

Good luck to all participants!
