The Technical Officials Advisory Group (TOAG) is made up of individuals (parents and non-parents) who volunteer to represent their respective regions on assisting USA Badminton (USAB) National Office in matters related to tournament officiating. Our volunteers are our most valued and essential contributors as they ensure the continued growth of the sport of badminton in the U.S.

Technical Officials (TO's) are a group of experts who play a crucial role in the development of badminton. USAB is committed to developing, maintaining and improving its TO's so that its members are served by top qualified officials for its events in the U.S. The coordination and management of the TO's for USAB is the responsibility of the Technical Officials Advisory Group.
