Foundation Coaching Course

The online Foundation Course incorporates the current practical course and the online Community Coach General Principles, which will now no longer need to be completed separately. The online course features Lisa Alexander in a training environment, and is focused on more netball specific coaching examples throughout.

Accreditation is one of the three key aspects of coach learning and provides coaches appropriate learning outcomes relevant to who they are coaching.  Accreditation is critical for coaches to understand the key coaching, skill acquisition, game sense, player development and welfare, planning and risk management aspects of their role.

Coaches are encouraged to progress along the coaching accreditation pathway at their own pace and to find a level of accreditation that suits their coaching style and the level of player they enjoy coaching.
