DEVELOPMENT COURSE
The Development Course is designed for beginner and club coaches and includes Beginning Coaching General Principles combined with the skills of netball.
As an accredited course it involves competency based assessment of practical coaching.
A new manual has been written to support this course. It includes basic information on the game of netball, warm-up information including lots of warm-up games, coaching points of each skill, drills and activities for each skill and suggestions for changing each activity to suit the players’ ability, modified games and strategies. In order for accreditation to be processed each participant must also successfully complete the Section 1 Umpires Theory Exam with a minimum of a 70% pass.

Intermediate Course

 

The Intermediate Course recognises the huge step and aims to minimise the gap between the former Level 1 and 2 Courses.
The small ratio of presenter to participating coaches allows participants to be hands on and provides the opportunity to be mentored through the planning process and receive constructive feedback relating to coaching behaviours and the skill progression of a training program.
Intermediate course participants must also complete the Intermediate General Principles Theory Course with the Office of Recreation & Sport before their accreditation is processed.

Advanced Course

 

The Advanced Coaching Course has been approved by the Australian Sports Commission and has replaced the Level 2 Coaching Course.  A review process was undertaken and changes were made based on feedback from presenters across Australia.  This ensures that the content remains relevant and appropriate within the new structure.
The Intermediate Coaching Course must be completed prior to the Advanced Course.  The only other prerequisite to the new course is the completion of two session plans approved by a mentor (coaches receive this information at the Intermediate Course and are responsible for returning the paperwork with their application form).  There are no General Principles to be completed as a prerequisite as these have been included in the course program.
The course follows a similar format to the previous Level 2 with the course conducted over 3 Sundays.  The final assessment is conducted at a training session. Participants will also be required to attend a match analysis session.

Refund of Fees Fees paid by participants may be refunded in the following circumstances and timeframes:

Notification of withdrawal in writing up to 30 days prior to commencement of the course
