accessment/testing for newcomers
question coming from newcomers who have played badminton before (mainly recreational) and are going to be accessed/tested by a coach to see which class/level they should apply for/capable of entering.
what are some of the requirements/stuff u should be capable of doing to get the greenlight to enter higher intermediate (3 and 4) or advance (4 and 5) classes?

would this be a general idea of acceptable footwork? ==> no need to take more than 2 steps to reach a shot, always stepping out your right foot first (right hand players) and using your left as a pivot for reaching corner shots. after hitting the shot over, u return back to center, mid court position.
i'm a right-handed player. for starting position as a receiver, should u be having your right foot forward or left foot forward? because i've been mainly hearing u should have your left foot forward (and it feels correct to have left foot forward) but then this youtube video on footwork (a guy that looked like a coach) showed otherwise so i just want clarification.
for types of strokes, do u mean doing types of shots like drops, lobs, clears and smashes? what % would be considered "consistent"?
thanks for the reply.

For a right handed player, you should have your left at the front when you recieve a serve.
To get into a higher level group lesson, you will need to know atleast the folowing:
- Front and back footwork
- high clear to the base line
- drop before the indicated spot
- nets both sides
- serve to base line
- maybe six corner footwork
- touch sidelines
Im not sure if im missing any...its been a long time since i've been in group lessons since joining the team.
