The National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS) provides competency based training and a nationally recognised accreditation to coaches working at all levels of sport. Changes to the NCAS have provided more flexibility to national sporting organisations, giving them the opportunity to determine their own accreditation structure to ensure coaches at all levels have the appropriate skills.
This course equips the beginner coach with appropriate coaching methods and the confidence to coach at the introductory level of sport. Coaches completing this course still need to complete a sport specific component in order to achieve the introductory level accreditation in their sport. To find out more about your sports accreditation pathway please contact the relevant state sporting organisation.
This program is aimed at the new or first time coach, particularly those working with children, that prefers learning to be dynamic, delivered by a professional coach and not via the computer. Participants are usually expected to have limited experience.
The course contains five modules, covering a range of general coaching topics including;
- The role of the coach
- Planning and reviewing
- Risk management
- Coaching communication
- Developing sports skills
- Game Sense
- Group Management
- Athlete development
Participants who complete the training program will be issued with an
Australian Sports Commission Beginning Coaching Certificate
