Badminton Young Officials Award

Badminton Young Officials AwardThe Badminton Young Official Award (YOA) is aimed at young people aged 14-19. The four hour course is a combination of practical and theory sessions designed to equip the Young Official with the necessary skills and a qualification that will allow them to officiate at badminton events.

Course Content:

  • The Laws of Badminton
  • Scoring and Umpiring
  • Service Judging
  • Line Judging
  • Match Control
  • Health & Safety

The YOA is delivered by trained Badminton England Tutors.  Each candidate will receive a resource pack including a Young Officials Student CD Rom.  Following the course, candidates will be supported to gain experience as an official.  Once they have done this they will receive a Certificate of Completion.  Young Officials will be actively encouraged to officiate at badminton competitions, starting with low level events, and leading onto some being selected to officiate at high profile events.
