Badminton Pan America

Dylan Darmohoetomo, a former player and coach from Suriname, had the honor of being the flag bearer for his delegation at the last Pan Am Games in 2019. Now, Dylan’s focus is on training players who can achieve even better results than he did as a player and ensuring the growth of badminton in his country.

As a coach, Dylan has taken part in several courses and led a local club in order to improve the state of badminton in Suriname. One notable course he attended was the Coach Level 3 course held in our region last year, which he found to be very interesting and valuable. He plans to share the new knowledge he acquired with other coaches in his country to further enhance badminton in Suriname.

Dylan’s journey in badminton began when he was just 8 or 9 years old, inspired by his parents who also played the sport. Since then, he has participated in various international tournaments such as the Universiades and Regional Games. Along the way, he realized his passion for coaching and began sharing his experiences and knowledge with younger players in his country.

Although the transition from player to coach comes with its own set of challenges, Dylan embraced the role wholeheartedly. He believes that being a coach allows him to provide guidance and support to younger players, helping them improve and reach their full potential. For Dylan, the decision to become a coach was an easy one, as he had already been looked up to by his peers for advice even when he was still an active player.
