First step – Online Foundation Coach Accreditation Course

About the course

The online Foundation Coach Accreditation Course is targeted primarily at beginner coaches, teachers, parents and Suncorp NetSetGO coaches and outlines introductory coaching information and basic netball techniques. The Course is the first step in the national coaching accreditation framework and is an important step along the knowledge pathway for a coach.

Modules:

  1. The role of the coach
  2. Planning
  3. Teaching netball skills
  4. The coach in action

The fully online Foundation course will take coaches on average 3-4 hours to complete.  The great thing about the course being online is that you can learn at your own pace at a time and place that suits and you can access the course all year round, any time of the day or night.

 

Anyone from Australia and overseas can access the online courses through the MyNetball Learning portal.
