"Love the game, understand it, teach it, inspire; then they will remember you with a smile!"
The Coaching Pathway
School leaders are encouraged to attend the Sport Leader UK endorsed Leadership Award in Badminton to develop an understanding of the game and be able to deliver fun sessions.
The coaching ladder in badminton starts with UKCC Level 1. Coaches who are competent at this level are invited to join Badminton Wales’ Coaches Register where they will receive numerous benefits and insurance to coach as an assistant to a Level 2 coach.
Active coaches will be encouraged to progress to UKCC Level 2. This is the lowest coaching qualification that will give coaches the skills, knowledge and insurance to coach independently (provided the coach is part of the Badminton Wales Coaches Register).
Further Development Opportunities
Alongside the UKCC coaching courses, Badminton Wales will provide UKCC Level 1 and 2 coaches with further development and training opportunities. These include Coaching Conferences and a number of CPD Workshops designed to help coaches develop and improve their coaching skills.
