Women's Badminton team

Getting started with the

Two-time State Champions!

How to Join the Team

During the Fall quarter, the team will meet in the Badminton Techniques class, PE 32B,  scheduled for Tuesdays & Thursday at 7:30 - 9:45 PM and Saturdays at 9:00 - 11:00 AM.  The class ID number  is CRN 21873 and it appears in the Fall schedule of classes. Team candidates should be attending at least two workouts each week -- each will last 90 -120 minutes, depending on how much we play that night.  In order to participate in any intercollegiate competition, athletes must complete a pre-participation physical.  We expect that physicals will occur on the week of Monday, September 23rd in the evening. More details will be sent to those enrolled in Badminton Techniques prior to the first week of the Fall Quarter

First-Time intercollegiate athletes (freshman and transfers) will take PE 99 -  Orientation to Athletics, 1 unit class conducted over 2-3 days and is conducted once on the week prior to the start of the Fall Quarter (CRN: 12803 in the SUMMER session),  or in week 3 or 4 of the Winter quarter which requires some accommodation of afternoon classes in the Winter Quarter.

For the Winter Quarter enroll in Intercollegiate Badminton P E -038W (CRN 35381) and contact Coach Mark for the specific training schedule.   Contact Coach Mark for more information.

In the Winter quarter the team trains 2-3 evenings per week (S-M-T-TH), shifting to Mon-Thu once the basketball season ends in late February. 

Scrimmages and pre-season tournaments commence in February with Coast Conference play running mid-March through early May.  The State Championships are the second weekend of May.

Academic Requirements: Full-time student status (min 9 academic units and 3 units of the intercollegiate women's badminton course for a total of at least 12 quarter units during the competitive season -- Winter/Spring quarters). Freshman or first-time competitors do not have a unit requirement for the Fall, but they should at least a 2.0 GPA in all work attempted. Sophomores or students who wish to compete for a second season must have completed 36 academic units prior to competing their second season. Athletes must maintain at least a 2.0 grade average. Our academic coordinator, Matt Trosper, can help you with more details in this area. Just call 408 864-8646.

Athletic Requirements: No previous competitive badminton experience is required to join the intercollegiate badminton class and try out for the team. All interested athletes are encouraged to register in the Fall course and join in the training. The traveling team will be based on student's ability and commitment to building a winning team.
