Respect in Sport
Respect in Sport is MANDATORY FOR ALL COACHES.
The Manitoba Badminton Association (MBA) is proud to partner with Sport Manitoba and embrace the Respect in Sport program to help ensure a safe and
positive environment for all participants. Respect in Sport (RIS) is an on-line training course designed to assist coaches, regardless of their sport, in
identifying and dealing with issues of abuse, neglect, harassment and bullying. It is designed to complement current coaching certification requirements.
The three-hour course can be taken at the coach’s leisure, in its entirety or in separate half-hour modules. Coaches will be required to complete the course
by the end of December 2007. There is no cost to the coach and the program will provide for recertification after the third and fifth year. Sport Manitoba
and Provincial Sport Organizations will monitor the participation of coaches.
Respect in Sport is available in both English and French.
Beginner Level Coaching
There are two options for those looking to coach mostly beginner/school level programs.
- Community Sport
- Shuttle Time
Shuttle Time is a Badminton World Federation (BWF) program designed to be able to be used by anyone - including coaches who have no prior badminton knowledge. BWF has many free online resources for Shuttle Time coaches including an App, lesson plans and videos on their youtube channel (scroll to the bottom of the page).
Intermediate to Competitive Level Coaching
There are various different levels of coaching certification one can achieve. Generally speaking the 'competitive' path looks something like this:
- Provincial (regional prerequisite)
- Competition Development (no prerequisite required as this level is designed for coaches of all sports)
For each 'competitive' level coaches will enter the 'in-training' phase - meaning that they have completed the required on and off-court courses and will remain in this phase until they have successfully passed an evaluation (see bottom of page for more info).
In order to become a regional coach in training, one must first complete three modules: Module 1 - Planning a Practice, Module 2 - Making Ethical Decisions and Module 3 - Technical/Tactical Basics. These 3 modules are designed to give every coach the essential knowledge necessary to adequately and confidently deliver quality practices to beginner level athletes. While the old system required theory courses to be taken at Coaching Manitoba the new system has these courses integrated into the modules. The course (usually) runs over a weekend (Saturday & Sunday) and is approximately 8 hours per day.
Two additional modules are required to become a provincial coach in training: Module 4 - Design a Sport Program and Basic Mental Skills, Module 5 - Technical and Tactical Foundation. The course is also 16+ hours and is usually run over a weekend
This level is best suited for coaches who are coaching athletes who are competing.There is an on-court component for this course as well as 10 classroom courses. The time commitment for this course is much more significant and completion depends on the availability of courses as well.
