How to become a Club Coach (Formerly level 1)
If you are interested in becoming a coach you will need to complete the following steps:
Contact your State Association and find out when the next coaching course will be held nearest to you.
You will be required to do two components to become a club coach. As a pre-requisite you will be required to complete 'Beginning General Principles in Coaching'. This is required to be completed within 6 months prior to the coaching course or after for you to become a coach.
You can do this course on line (it takes approx 4-6 hours). Click on the link below for beginning principles
www.dsr.nsw.gov.au/training/coaching_asconline.asp and then click on the ASC learning portal and register.
On completion of the general principles you will be able to print off a completion certificate, take the certificate with you to the coaching course if completed prior to the course or once completed take your certificate to the course administrator for processing as a club coach. Upon completion of your coaching course, the fee for registering with the Australian Sports Commisssion is an initial cost of $25.00 which includes your wallet size coaching ID card.
Once accredited with the Australian Sports Commission, you will be registered as a coach for four years. You will be supplied with a wallet size ID card with your details and a record card to record your coaching lessons which will be required to be signed off by a committee member of the club where you hold the lessons or a coach of a higher level.
When your four years are due to expire you will need to forward your record card to the ACTA to renew for a further four years. You will be reissued with a new ID card.
If you require any further information please contact our office on 0269 382 121.
This process is currently under review and changes will be made to the renewal process as soon as it becomes available.
