The BWF/BEC Combined Coach Education Level 1+2 Course that finished just two days ago in Kyiv, Ukraine, has had a favourable outcome for everyone involved.

It was an intense nine days for the participants of the BWF/BEC Combined Level 1 and Level 2 Coach Education Course that took place in Kyiv, Ukraine, from 8-16 November. Their efforts and their willingness to learn have been fruitful, with all participants having passed the assessments brilliantly.

- The outcome could not have been better. It has been a satisfactory experience for everyone involved, from participants to experts. Everyone has shared good memories and invaluable knowledge that they can now take on their current and future careers.

An enjoyable learning experience
Hosted in the Ukrainian capital with the Ukrainian Badminton Federation as hosts, Badminton Europe invited active players and former players that have played at BEC International Challenge level or higher to take part in this course. BEC Development & High Performance Officer Mari Carmen Casermeiro is pleased with the participants’ satisfactory results.

- Participants were fully engaged throughout the course and took into consideration all the information that the experts provided them with, as well as each other’s useful tips. As a result, all nine of them performed splendidly in their assessments and have satisfactorily passed to acquire the BWF Coach Education Level 1 and 2 certificates.

The collective effort to further develop European badminton
COVID-19 is still part of our lives, and this means that we can continue enjoying badminton, but everyone needs to follow the safety protocols in place. This was, of course, the case in this course.

- As in all our previous courses and events organised during the COVID-19 pandemic, we followed all health protocols in place to ensure everyone’s safety with tests, masks, and distance when required. This guaranteed a secure delivery of the course, Casermeiro explained.

It has been a great year for badminton in Ukraine, and this is a great way of continuing with the task of improving badminton at all levels and spreading the word of our sport. What better way to do so than by inviting a group of former and active players from all over Europe, including Olympians, to contribute to the future of badminton through such an important part of the sport that is coaching.

- Our collaboration with Ukrainian Badminton Federation has also been a success, and we are very thankful to our hosts. They have been involved in the organisation of many other activities to develop badminton such as Shuttle Time, but this is the first course of this type that has been hosted there, and they have done a magnificent job. It is inspiring to see everyone doing their bit for the development of badminton in Europe, Casermeiro said.
