2013 Nordic Camp in Kristiansand, Norway



For another year the Nordic countries, with the financial support of Badminton Europe, organized a joint regional project training camp for some of the best U15 players in the region. The 39 players and coaches from Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland and Faroe Islands attended the 2013 Nordic Camp, held in period 31 July - 4 August 2013.

"Camps like this are a unique opportunity to help each other to develop, as well as to establish new international co-operations among coaches, as well as the players. The level of the players and coaches who took part in this year camp was very high and we believe that everyone left the camp with new knowledge and motivation in badminton. We all look forward to next year's camp, which will take place in Finland."

"Players from different countries practiced together. That created the opportunity for the knowledge exchange, as well as great,for some players first, international experience. The players were provided with the feedback from the very qualified coaches. The coaches, on the other hand, got the opportunity for the knowledge and ideas exchange."

(Morten Carlsen, head coach, Norway)
