Error prevention rather than error correction
Is it possible to work in such a way to prevent or limit future technique issues?
Especially with novice players within years 1- 4 of starting badminton
What are there techniques that if left, may limit a player’s future development?
What is an inappropriate technique
My assumptions - do you agree?

My hope is that you can become an expert coach in 'Error Prevention', create strategies when working with novice players, inspire some thoughts and ignite a passion for you to share your own.
I am not suggesting that all players need to fit a perfect model of technique, I’m sure that a ‘perfect model’ doesn’t even exist. There must be a wide bandwidth of techniques that can be used to play our game.
However, there are techniques that I hope you agree will and do limit future development, cause injury and reduce enjoyment.
Error prevention through positive coaching must on of the uppermost goals for all coaches.
