Local high school coaches have prepared their participating badminton students for pre-LKSSAA. Students travel to Saint Francois Xavier to play in an all day pre-LKSSAA tournament to see who will compete in LKSSAA next week. The best 16 students of each local high school have practiced hard for this tournament in hopes of making it to the next competition.
