I think that you need to slot in rest somewhere there, since just sleep isn't enough. I think you need at least 1 or 2 off days during the week, so your muscles have time to rest and develop after your intense training breaks them down. Muscles only grow if you give it rest, the work is just to break them down. Rest so they come back more powerful.

Definitely squeeze a rest day in there.
A week into the program, listen to your body and adjust the schedule accordingly. You don't want to overtrain and injure yourself. Trust me, I know.
Make sure your diet is aligned with your training regimen. Have enough nutrients and water so you can rebuild quickly between sessions.

whenever your body feels like it needs, it is my advice, but if it were me doing this, id pick saturday and sunday, since its always good to have a social life and chill, while also maintaining ur badminton life. The last thing you want is to overtrain and burn out ur muscles

wow....your schedule's so intensive and it's like some military regimentation...
As lefty said...adjust the schedule accordingly to your body's signals....Only you know yourself best.

I would slot in some pilates and an extra weights session instead of all those 50 minute runs.
How old are you?

It is important to know your age. Your schedule is far too intensive for a developing body especially now as you're going into puberty. You need more rest days between workouts.

Physical training is 5% stimulation (e.g. doing exercises) and 95% recovery and restoration. If you plan to do that much training, then you must have a huge recovery plan to keep yourself from wearing down.
One mistake I think many people make (some inexperienced coaches too) when they go from 1 day to 3 days to 5 days a week is to simply copy the 1 day/week workout for each day. This stems from a poor understanding of how fatigue affects the player.
I figure that a hard badminton training session takes about 4 days to fully recover from. So, if you only train 1-2 times a week, go all out. If you train 3 or more, you must make adjustments to keep yourself able to perform at a high level. Stuff like massages, good nutrition, better base fitness will help to a certain point, but the most critical thing is managing your training volume smartly.
For example, you might cut down the volume of training each day. After the first day you might not feel that tired but by the fifth you will - except that this way the average quality of training will be higher. Or, keep training at full volume to overload your body, then take an extended break (1 week off) to recover. These are both valid ways to manipulate training volume.

you will not be able to maintain that for more than a week without burning out and probably injuring yourself and getting sick. Im doing about a third of that, and im pretty fit , and im still tired all the time getting aches and pains.
Also, 2 hours of weights? 4 hours footwork? i think thats excessive. Have you tried to do 4 hours of footwork yet?
I dont want to discourage you,and i love seeing somebody taking training seriously but i think you should cut back and begin with something more realistic and build up. That way you will be able to maintain yourself.
If you dont believe me, as an experiment you can try your scedual and see how it goes for a week. I imagine most people wont be able to get out of bed by thursday or Friday.

Have you consulted a coach about your training schedule?
Any coach will tell you, you need to rest and listen to your body once a week.
As mentioned above in another post. You need to taper your training schedule for your goals. If your goal is to play in tournaments throughout the year, you shoud plan a training schedule for that tournament, roster whatever.
You have a pre season, beginning of season, mid season and end of season.
Using the pre season for all your core strength, such as running long distance (not over 10k) between 4-10k runs. Sit ups, strength and conditioning.
Beginning of season you need to develop your oxygen system. 5-6 days a week. Running 8x400metres. Continuous footwork 5 minutes footwork to 4 minutes footwork, 3 minutes and 2 minutes footwork. Much like a phartlec run.
Mid Season you begin to build your lactate system, oxygen system. 4-5 days a week. You syhould have devleoped your strength and stamina in pre and beginning of season. Also hittign drills, drills drills drills and drills. Drills maybe boring but it's the cornerstone of any good player. Being able to hit the same shot 20 times into the same posistion.
End of Season you shyouldnt need to train more than 3-4 times a week, fine tuning your shots.
This is only a guide. Mine is a bit more developed than this but I think you should get the general idea. If you wanted help in putting together a training schedule I might be able to put one together for you.
As I said it depends on your goals and what you want to achieve. I play in 7-8 tournaments per year, besides normal roster and my training routine is developed just for that.

this looks more like the training schedule for a badminton prodigy in China rather than someone in Alberta

Wow... Are you ranked first in Alberta Abhorsen?
