Coaching is Key!

Regardless of the type of program from a community playtime to a competitive club, coaching is vital to a well run program and the development of badminton. Badminton Nova Scotia can assist with developing competent, knowledgeable, and certified badminton coaches.

Badminton Nova Scotia relies upon having enthusiastic community coaches who are either former athletes or parents/community members that contribute to providing a quality badminton experience across Nova Scotia. Coaches begin at the community level and progress to supporting the development of competitive and high performance athletes who represent Nova Scotia at the Atlantic and National levels. Badminton Canada and Badminton Nova Scotia use the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) to educate badminton coaches. All coaches in Nova Scotia are encouraged to become certified with the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP).
