At this stage a player is expected to have a good understanding of the basic strokes. Drills enforce repetitive stroke making to attain greater control and improve footwork. Greater commitment is required towards fitness and endurance. Badminton strategies are introduced for singles, doubles and mixed events and players are encouraged to participate in tournaments. The goal is to achieve a significant improvement in speed, control and mental understanding of the game and its various strategies.
Players at this stage exhibit mastery on some strokes combined with adept usage of several other strokes. The training program is tailored to create situations that force a player to use the right mix of various offensive / defensive strokes at the right time.

Player specific strategies will be designed to help them maximize their strengths during tournaments. Goal is to provide the platform necessary for players to compete at the national level.
