    Hey folks. I'm just wondering which strokes are considered to fall under the level 1 category under the NCCP curriculum?

    Here is a list of the most basic strokes that I am sure would be classified as the level 1 strokes:

    underhand (forehand) serve
    backhand serve
    underhand lift (forehand / backhand)
    forehand overhead clear


    below would not really be strokes, but nevertheless would be level 1 skills:

    basic footwork


    What else, folks?

    What is NCCP level 1? Is that for beginners?
    How about net shots? Tricky net shots?

    I did a search for NCCP, and found out what it stands for :p :D
    http://www.nccp.org/

    j/k! NCCP stands for National Coaching Certification Program if I'm not wrong?!

    I thought begginners learn all types of strokes, and what differentiate intermediate and advanced players from beginners is how well and consistent you performed all these strokes plus strategies!? :confused:

    It also include double's rotation and a LITTLE bit of strategy. (when you hit to the center you close the angles, when you hit to the line you open the game)

    + what you said.

    I would include the following on top of what has been suggested:
    - grips (forehand and backhand)
    - base position
    - stretching and warm-ups
    - netshots (backhand & forehand)
    - service returns (doubles and singles)

    Also, Laws of Badminton should be included.

    The NCCP course uses the D.E.E.R. teaching technique which is Demonstrate, Explain, Execute and Review. One thing to note in the footwork is Recovery for the next shot (always emphasize balance and control in getting to the shot and then recovering).

    Ok, so here comes the big question. If I am just an intermediate player, should I even bother with signing up for the NCCP Level 1 technical course? There is a level 1 technical course being offered here in Vancouver, and I figure I know at least the basics in all the areas that have been mentioned thus far. However, I won't go out on a limb and climb that I'm an expert in any of them.

    What are your opinions, folks?

    You will always learn something in those courses just being with other players. Some good players are following those courses to become coaches and just seeing them is a great way to learn. Also, the homework you'll have to do will help a lot to focus on techniques.

    Now, I am a NNCP level 3 (national level I think) and I learned a lot in all levels. Sometimes, it is just small tips that make a huge difference.
