1st4sport UKCC Level 1 Award in Coaching Badminton (Assistant Coach)


The 1st4sport UKCC Level 1 Award in Coaching Badminton is the first step on the BADMINTON England Coaching Pathway. The qualification focuses on both the art and the science of coaching, introducing new coaches to the “How to” skills of coaching as well as helping candidates to break down and coach the technical and tactical elements of the game. It will qualify the assistant coach to work alongside a more qualified coach, working with players in their early stages of development.

Who is it designed for?

The 1st4sport UKCC Level 1 Award in Coaching Badminton is suitable for candidates aged 16+ who are new to coaching, but who have some knowledge of the game and would like to learn how to apply that in a coaching environment. Assistant coaches should be committed to their own development and should be looking to gain experience whilst working with a coach who is already qualified at Level 2 or higher.

What does the Level 1 certificate qualify me to do?

The course will qualify the successful candidate to assist a higher qualified coach working with:

• Junior beginner / junior club players
