Offering both guidance and financial support to encourage the development of coaches
We know that coaches are at the core of development and growth of any sport and we will be looking to support coaches to develop their knowledge and skills to effectively coach people with a disability. To do this we are working closely with Governing Bodies to ensure that we are working cohesively in developing coaches' skills. We offer two levels of support; Guidance and Financial.
Level 1 Support - Guidance Only
This level is for any coach who is looking to gain more information on disability badminton. You do not need to have a coaching qualification to gain more information on how to get involved. The team at ADBC have a wide level of knowledge across many aspects of Disability Badminton and are here to help guide on the following aspects;
Training available to coaches from Governing Bodies and Disability organisations
Setting up of disability clubs or on steps to make their club more inclusive
Guidance on coaching different classes
Guidance on first steps into disability coaching
To access any of the above guidance simply drop us an email on email@example.com and one of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.
Level 2 Support - Financial
Level 2 looks to support more advanced coaches looking to develop promising and performance athletes. Each year Governing Bodies get an opportunity to put forward coaches for BWF Level 1 Module 13 training hosted by Badminton Europe. A grant is awarded to support one coach to attend the three-day course. We will be looking to help support the attendance of this coach and where applicable a second coach. The course is a 3-day practical and classroom-based learning on all disabilities. The course aims to give coaches the knowledge they need to effectively support and coach those with a disability.
We will be working with Governing Bodies to identify coaches for these spots, however if you are interested in registering to be considered for this opportunity you must fit into the following criteria;
Level 2 UKCC coach
