BI Shuttle Time
Who is it for?
The BI Shuttle time qualification is designed to be the first step on the ladder to becoming a coach. It is aimed at beginner coaches and school teachers who wish to deliver badminton sessions in their schools. If you have played badminton and you are interested in learning how to coach then this course will help you start out by giving you an idea of how to work with groups of players and what knowledge you need to develop to become a coach or to deliver badminton in a school.
What does it qualify me to do?
It does not qualify individuals to be coaches rather providing them with a basic knowledge of the coaching process which can then be built upon in the following level 1 and 2 awards.
