Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Badminton


1st4sport Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Badminton

“Prepare for, deliver and review coaching session(s)..”

The 1st4sport Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Badminton (L2CCBAD) qualifies the coach to coach independently and to be able to plan a series of linked coaching sessions. There will still be a significant focus on the “How to” skills of coaching that were introduced at Level 1. The technical elements that were introduced at Level 1 will be consolidated and a number of new technical elements will be introduced. There is a greater focus on tactical coaching as well as technical coaching. You will also develop a greater understanding of the demands of badminton, physically and psychologically, and how this impacts on your coaching.

Who is it designed for?

The 1st4sport Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Badminton is suitable for those who have already gained some experience of coaching whilst working as an Assistant Coach, following their completion of a Level 1 Award/Qualification. Coaches working towards their Level 2 qualification should be committed to their own development as a coach and should be able to demonstrate this through extended off course study. They should continue to work with a more experienced and qualified coach throughout their course of study.

How is the qualification delivered?

The 1st4sport Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Badminton will be delivered by an accredited BADMINTON England tutor. It will be split into the following phases:

Phase 1: Induction and pre-course (25 hours)

Phase 2: Taught course (14 hours)

Phase 3: Mid course home study (20 hours)

Phase 4: Taught course (7 hours)

Phase 5: Practical Coaching and preparation (28 hours)

Phase 6: Internal and independent assessment of practical coaching (6 hours)

Throughout the taught programme the theoretical “How to coach” skills are threaded through the technical and tactical “What to coach” skills, both on court and in group activities. As a result you will have many opportunities to practice and receive feedback on the coaching skills that you have learnt. You will be assessed throughout the course by your course tutor who will give you plenty of opportunities to demonstrate competence in key areas. There will also be some written work throughout the course and an independent assessment at the end.
