Officials in Badminton
Badminton Nova Scotia recognizes the importance of having trained officials at tournaments. Officials ensure high quality tournaments with the proper enforcement of rules and regulations. BNS encourages officials to get involved in the Badminton Nova Scotia Officiating Program. This program will assist officials to gain skills in the areas of umpiring and service judging while giving them opportunity to gain experience using these skills in tournament in match scenarios.
Regional umpires may umpire at the club and provincial level anyone 14 or older may become a regional umpire.
Provincial umpires may umpire at the provinical and atlantic levels we welcome umpires 14 and older.
National Umpire Certification
Fully certified provincial officials are encouraged to obtain national certification. Provincial officials as well as national officials are given the opportunity to apply for national and international assignments by the National Officials Committee (N.O.C.). The N.O.C. is the national governing body responsible for training and accreditation of national officials.
The essential components are:
1. Two years experience as a provincial official;
2. Written exam (approx. three hours); and
3. On court practical skill evaluation.
