Long-term, players will aim for inclusion into BADMINTONscotland’s Junior and Senior Performance Programmes and eventually join the Scottish Institute of Sport. Training programmes are based on four key areas; Stroke Production, Specific Badminton Movement, Tactical Awareness and Physical aspects (Specific and Generic). As players move through years 1 – 6 the demands of each are adjusted to support development of each individual player. The School of Sport badminton programme is supplemented with individual and team competition programmes at local, national and international events.

In addition to the competition programme, players have access to support in Psychology, Nutrition, and Sports Science and undergo regular fitness testing to monitor and evaluate each individual player’s progression. Training camps also provide a chance for players to work on specific areas during the year to ensure maximum gains from the periodic training programmes. The overall badminton programme has led to an experienced team of coaches providing quality planned sessions to facilitate excellent opportunities maximising the potential of players in the School of Sport.
