Eric Hsu

ERSC Co-founder, Coaching Program Coordinator and Coaching Lead

Eric is a NCCP Level 2 certified coach and graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology and minor in Psychology. He specializes in badminton conditioning to minimize injuries. Eric has a broad range of coaching experience from working with grassroot players developing foundational skills to elite Canadian National team members.

The goal of the coaching program is to produce high level competitive players based on the philosophy of self-discipline, perseverance and hard work.  As an athlete, he trained in a team in Taiwan and was shocked when he realized how individualized the training was in Canada.  Eric discovered that this individualism made it harder for athletes to stay motivated to train so he established a competitive and cooperative training environment that teaches players how to strategically solve problems so that they can excel on and off court in a professional manner.
