GPRC Wolves Badminton Club
GPRC Wolves Athletics has teamed up Wolves Badminton Alumni to once again provide junior badminton players with more opportunities to play the game.
The Wolves Junior Badminton Club provides a fun learning environment for young people to develop their badminton skills. The program runs September to April, operating Tuesday evenings starting September 29th, 2015 at Mother Theresa School.
The club is run in two age groups, 10 -11 year olds as well as 12 - 16 year olds. Each age group is instructed by Wolves Badminton alumni as well as Senior Grande Prairie Badminton Club personnel.
10-11 year olds will practice from 6:00pm – 7:00pm, while the 12 years and older group will go from 7:00pm – 9:00pm on Tuesday evenings.
You will be introduced to the importance of the proper grip, stance, footwork and swing for all of the basic strokes. You will also be shown overhand and underhand clears, smashes, drives, drops, net shots, around the head shots and serves. Continued improvement will come from more consistent hitting techniques and movement on the court.

We have a new registration system - please look at our registration guide below! Club registration and account creation must be done in your child's name.
1. Finding your child's student ID
If your child has ever attended a Wolves summer camp, been a Wolves Club athlete or been involved in any other GPRC offerings
(such as Daycare or Music lessons):
Please call 780-539-2704 or email email@example.com to obtain their student ID. After obtaining your child's student ID number, you will have to request an account for him or her.
If your child has never attended a program offered by GPRC:
Please create a new myGPRC account for your child by clicking here. (You will be redirected to Continuing Education - please follow the steps to create a new account from there!)
2. Log into your child's account
Now with your newly created account, please log in using your child's student ID number as the username and the temporary password that was emailed to you. These passwords often contain a lot of characters, so it is easiest to copy and paste this password back into the login. You will then be prompted to change your password.
3. Add club selections to your cart
After logging in, you will be redirected to the myGPRC homepage. Under "Continuing Education", please click on “Wolves Club Program” to see the course selections. Click on "Find Course Sections" to see when the desired club is offered and add to your cart. Then click "Proceed to registration". You will be able to finalize and pay for the camps from there.
