Badminton at CCKSS is about the passion and pride from representing the school and love for the game. Most students start off with minimal experience in the game and are trained to compete competently in inter-school competitions.
Every year, students participate in the West Zone Inter-school Badminton competition and Wee Kim Wee Badminton Challenge trophy. Students are also encouraged to participate in external competitions to better themselves, ranging from mini-competitions organised by Community Clubs to highly competitive ones such as the Wee Kim Wee Badminton challenge.
Students are subjected to training sessions of increasing intensity levels to give the players ample preparation for the upcoming challenges they will face. Students are consistently trained on techniques such as netting, smashing, lobbing, footwork, et cetera. As their skills improved by leaps and bounds, our players were able to stand their ground against other schools.
Students also participate in friendly matches with other schools such as Bukit Batok Secondary, Innova JC, Commonwealth Secondary, Woodlands Ring Secondary and many others. This enables students to gain exposure and interact with players from other schools, allowing them to experience different types of playing styles, leading to significant improvement in their skills.
As the saying goes, “Unity makes strength”, the students also organise camps and farewell parties for graduating members on an annual basis which help foster strong bonds between players. We believe that with strong bond, our players can reach great heights in their journey of Badminton.
Sportsmanship and character are also heavily emphasised in our CCA. Students are given various leadership positions which promote character development which emphasises on discipline. We aim to develop confident and disciplined players who bring these values along with them to succeed in life.
