Northumberland Badminton Young Officials Programme:
NBA is offering Badminton Young Officials the alternative pathway to the top of their sport. The Badminton Young Official Award (YOA) is aimed at young people aged 14-19. The 4 hour course is a combination of practical and theory sessions designed to equip the Young Official with the necessary skills and a qualification that will allow them to officiate at badminton events.

If you have not yet done this Award, ask your teachers about it!
If you have already completed this Award, congratulations on becoming a Young Official!!
