USA Badminton Coaching in Partnership with the Badminton World Federation
USA Badminton is looking to grow the sport of badminton across the nation, supporting our athletes in many settings from schools, clubs, recreation centers to high-level and International tournament environments.
A Badminton Coach’s job enables the badminton athlete to be an empowered individual who can compete at their desired level. Coaches do not just help our athletes during training – they are also individuals who are at the center of our badminton communities.
While there may be an increase of individuals who are coaching, USAB only recognizes those coaches certified through our USAB/BWF High-Performance coaching pathway. Specifically, at USAB sanctioned junior tournaments, it is mandatory that all coaches have current coaching passes, issued annually by USAB, and have completed and presented to USAB a certificate for the BWF- Level 1 Online course.
