USA Badminton Coach 

Behind every Great Player is a “Team” of Great Coaches!

There are many dedicated Badminton Coaches in the United States ranging from parents, volunteers, teachers to full time paid professionals who work very hard to improve the standard of badminton in United States. The success and popularity of badminton in the United States is directly related to the hard work of these individuals.

Like in any sport, Coaching in Badminton is a very rewarding and satisfying job. A Badminton Coach’s job enables the Badminton Athlete to be an empowered individual who is able to display skillful shots, move elegantly on the court, make effective tactical decisions and interact with his/her community, opponents, fellow athletes, officials and the spectators. It’s a big job!

USA Badminton would love to grow Badminton at schools, clubs, rec centers, and those athletes who are competing or intend to compete at the international level. We need to increase the number of qualified Badminton Coaches throughout the United States as well as motivate the existing coaches with their continuous development.

While USA Badminton encourages people to be involved in coaching, USAB only recognizes USAB Certified Coaches in its sanctioned coaching activities. In order for one to be a USAB certified coach, one must:

  1. be a current USAB member in good standing.
  2. apply and have an approved background check on file.
  3. complete and pass an appropriate USAB Coach Certification training/course.
  4. Complete the latest USOC approved Safe Sport Training including any required refresher courses.

There are two coaching tracks: Sport Performance Track (appropriate for coaches who are keen to coach the grassroot, beginner and social competitive communities) and the High Performance Track (appropriate for coaches who are keen to coach the elite development, serious competitive and high performance communities).
