Coach Education is a fundamental component of Badminton Oceania’s development programme and has a direct correlation with Player Development and the quality of player’s progressing from social badminton through to competing on the international stage. All of the coach education courses offered by Badminton Oceania and the Badminton World Federation (BWF) are all inclusive programmes and include disability modules targeted at working with able bodied and disabled athletes.
Badminton Oceania oversees the delivery of BWF Coach Education courses starting with the Badminton Teaching Certificate (Shuttle Time Teacher) through to the BWF Level 1 and Level 2 Coaching certificates.
As part of coach development throughout the region, Badminton Oceania also supports programmes offered by Oceania Sport Education Programme (OSEP) that offer an introduction to general coaching principles.
Our target is to have at least 70% of our member countries equipped with BWF qualified coaches and these coaches linking with the country development programme to progress the level of players in the region.
