With kids starting as young as 6, the Advanced level sees players up till approximately 21-23 years of age.
Varied Levels of Batches
The Player Coaching Program is divided into
Having drawn from the Shuttle Time curriculum developed by the Badminton World Federation, we added our collective experience spanning several decades to create a systematic curriculum.
Solid Assessment Protocols
Trainees at our centres are out through graded assessment tests, comprising both on-court and off-court skills. Upon passing these tests, trainees are promoted onto the following levels.
Ensuring Forward Progression
To enable seamless progression for each player, we insist on a maximum of eight (8) players per court under the watchful guidance of a coach at all times. This ensure individual attention and close monitoring.
Each program is tailored to cater to a different level of badminton expertise. Each players fits in one of the following levels:
This course can be taken up by complete raw beginners or players who have had some experience playing. We usually divide the beginners batch into levels as well- ranging from players with no basic skills to players who can participate in advanced shadow play and agility. The beginner program is a highly flexible program as far as player growth is concerned. With multiple coaches available across various centres, each child is able to work on their pain points and further strengthen their strong points.
The Intermediate Program is the right fit for a competitive level player in their respective age category. They are expected to be able to execute most of the strokes from almost all positions on the court, along with making economical movements. The players at this level make better choices of strokes and also have basic knowledge of match play.
A competitive player in their respective age category who has an expertise in stroke execution would qualify to be an Advanced Level player at PSM. The players at this level require polishing and enhancing their technical and physical skills and fitness. These are players who take up badminton professionally and compete in State and National level tournaments. The Advanced Level is also a scouting ground for players to be picked up by the Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy.
