England Performance Pathway

ENGLAND JUNIOR PATHWAY

The England Junior Pathway (EJP) criteria is reviewed each year for the purposes of ensuring it remains relevant and aligned to Badminton England’s Vision and Purpose:

VISION |  Win World, Olympic and Paralympic medals
PURPOSE | To consistently produce athletes who have a winning mentality with the technical and physical capabilities to become world class.


The England Junior Programme (EJPP) consists of five progressive groups; Discover, Engage, Progress, Excel and England Performance Programme (also known as Perform) with Discover, Engage, Progress and Excel making up the England Junior Pathway (EJP):

 

Progress through the EJP is determined by results at identified competitions, performance trajectory, commitment and performance behaviours.

Players invited onto the EJP will receive a programme of support which will be discussed and agreed with a Pathway Coach which will then be monitored throughout the year.

Player support will take into account the stage of development of a player and the Pathway group they are placed in. As a guide some or all of the following opportunities will be available to a player within the EJP:

  • Training Opportunities
  • International Competition opportunities
  • Access to Sports Science Sports Medicine support (eg Strength & Conditioning)
  • Access to HIVE (EJP’s communication and resource platform)
  • Player and parent education via camps (eg performance lifestyle, nutrition, psychology)

 

The EJP package of support for Discover, Engage, Progress and Excel Groups will be communicated in early 2021 subject to funding submission decision outcomes.
