With the 2021-22 competitive season quickly approaching, it is time to conduct our annual Coach Accreditation Badges exercise. This applies to all coaches that may be coaching, or assisting a head coach, at a Junior A, Junior B, U23 and/or SeniorOpen series and/or provincial championship competitions. Badminton BC Referees and Umpires will be ensuring only those coaches with accreditation badges access the field of play.
Badges will be ordered in late August for September delivery. This requires that the information needed for ordering the badges must be in hand by mid August.. please do not delay in following the process outlined below for this annual exercise. Single badge orders are much more costly than the planned bulk order.
