Preparation Phase Training Program

“The quality of your shot plays an important role in the quality of your opponent’s return”

                                                                                                                                                      -Coach Jiva


The Preparation Phase on court training program focuses on the development of Foundation of a player. The term Foundation in badminton refers to the same use of the word in construction. You can’t see the foundation work as much as the building itself but you sure can feel it, especially when challenged. If you do not put enough depth into the foundation works, your chances of going to the top is reduced significantly.

The following statement describes the translation of the term Foundation from the perspective of Asia Badminton University:

Efficiency of Movement from Center of Court to All six (6) Corners of the court and Vice Versa.

 Development of the defense aspect of badminton.

Development of soft skills within the vast amount of skills in badminton.

Confidence of Playing Along the Side Lines Development
