Background and Aim: The multi-ball training method has proven to be effective in various coaching scenarios. It can be successfully utilized in one-to-one situations, such as private coaching, where a coach works with a single player. Multi-ball training is a method commonly used in various sports, including table tennis, tennis, and badminton, to enhance skill development and improve performance. The objectives of this research were: (1) To study the effects of a multi-ball training program on badminton skills of male students aged between 9-11 years, and (2) To construct the multi-ball training program for improving badminton skills of male students aged between 9-11 years.

Materials and Methods: This research is quasi-experimental. The population of this research was 37 male students aged 9-11 years of the badminton club in Huangdao District, Qingdao City. 26 male students who had never learned the basic skills of badminton before were selected in this research as a sample group (n=26). This research used a multi-ball training program that was developed by the researcher, and the IOC value was 0.89. The duration of the training was 8 weeks. One group pretest-posttest design was used to compare the results before training, after 4 weeks of training, and after finishing 8 weeks of training. The data was analyzed with mean, standardized, and One-way ANOVA repeated measures with a significant difference level was 0.05.

Results: The results showed that after the 8-week training using a multi-ball training program, it was found that the badminton skills of male students aged between 9-11 years improved in all four aspects, including the high clear shot, drop shot, smash, and serve skills. These skills showed statistically significant differences before receiving the training with the multi-ball training program, after completing the training in Week 4 and Week 8.

Conclusion: It can be concluded that the multi-ball training program developed by the researcher affects the development of badminton skills in male students aged between 9-11 years, which could improve the fundamental badminton skills of male students.
