A USA Badminton Umpire Clinic will be held by the Shannon Pohl Badminton Academy on Friday, May 26th, 2022 from 6:30-10pm at the Adversity Volleyball Center for badminton players, enthusiasts, and parents interested in learning to become a certified USA Badminton Umpire.
This course is being held prior to the 2023 YONEX SPBA Midwest Open Regionals (May 27-29), which will serve as an excellent opportunity for trainees to have full on-court training. After the clinic, you will develop your technical official skills at the tournament while helping an important event to run smoothly.
For those feeling sufficiently prepared, evaluations can be conducted as a part of this event and the written exam can be administered so that by the end of the 2023 YONEX SPBA Midwest Open Regionals, you can become a fully accredited USA Badminton Regional Umpire. Anyone junior players in 8th grade or older or adults is eligible to learn from the clinic but full certification is only available to current members of USA Badminton age 18 years and older.
