Coach Education

Whether you have aspirations of working with young children through their key developmental years or coaching talented senior athletes to international honours, there is a role within badminton to suit your individual needs.

The NEWBA Coaching Pathway has been designed around the needs and requirements of coaches working with various target groups. Under this structure, all coaching roles are viewed as being equally valuable to the sport. Coaches can then pursue appropriate qualifications that reflect the environment they are working in, as well as their own personal coaching aspirations and ambitions.

 

Below is a list and information of the coaching qualifications available to coaches in North East Wales. If you would like further information about the courses available, please contact us on newba.org@gmail.com

Shuttle Time

Shuttle Time offers school teachers and club coaches access to free resources, training and equipment, which support the teaching of enjoyable, safe and inclusive badminton activities to children aged 5-15 years old. Shuttle Time lessons are designed to provide children with a positive image of badminton through many opportunities to have fun, engage with others and experience success.

BWF recognise the positive effect that teachers and coaches have in motivating children to lead active and healthy lives. To support the delivery of Shuttle Time, BWF have created a practical 1-day course designed specifically for teachers and club coaches.

 

The course shows teachers how to deliver Shuttle Time activities to pupils in a variety of teaching situations, including:

  • Limited equipment

  • Mixed range of abilities

  • Pupils with a physical or intellectual disability
