Why do this course?

Interested in joining the fulfilling world of helping people to develop new skills in their sport?
Coaching can be a hugely satisfying experience, where you can decide how much time you
commit. Whether it is helping at your local son or daughter’s club for an hour a week or
setting up your own badminton club, coaching can work for you. Watching players develop
their skills under your guidance is incredibly rewarding, but don’t overlook the benefits you’ll
see personally. You’ll develop your personal and professional skills, get a chance to exercise,
meet new people, encourage respectful behaviour and improve your confidence.
What is the course structure?

Before you attend your first day you will be sent through a link to two pre-course e-learning
modules, these being:

Coaching skills for foundation coaches
Business skills for foundation coaches
These module takes roughly 1 hour to complete and will give you confidence, up to date
terminology and knowledge to support you during the course. We recommend you complete
these prior to day 1 of the course.
The course itself will follow the structure below:

Day one:

Arrival and setting the scene
My coaching philosophy
My coaching kit bag
Leading warm-ups and cool downs
Experiencing Badminton England programmes
Feeding & Differentiation
Movement and the stroke cycle
Day two:

Underarm hitting
Forehand overhead hitting
Backhand overhead hitting
The badminton landscape
Fun games

What is the assessment process?
The assessment process for the course is an e-assessment module, required to be completed
after the course. This is formed of 30 multiple choice questions, with a pass mark of 75%.
You will get three attempts to achieve this mark.
What have coaches thought of the course?
 “I really enjoyed myself – I am not a badminton player, so found some parts more difficult,
but the tutors really helped my understanding throughout the duration of the course”  – Helena
“I have gone back to my club and recommended the course to so many other potential
coaches” – Derek
“The two days were full on, but also full of interesting information and knowledge, that I’m
already using back in my junior sessions”  – Tanya
