Following Badminton Canada's lead this past 2018-2019 season, Badminton BC has committed to the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) Responsible Coaching Movement (RCM) beginning the 2019-2020 season. The RCM is a multi-phase system-wide movement, coordinated by the CAC and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) that has the potential to affect all sport organizations and coaches. The RCM is a call to action for organizations to implement realistic change based on their individual state of readiness.
The RCM is the result of extensive ongoing consultation with the Canadian Sport Community. These consultations will guide the different phases of the RCM that will address the role coaches play with issues relating to the health and safety of athletes, both on and off the field of play.
