Netball Australia has launched an innovative approach to its national Coach Accreditation Framework, with the introduction of a blended learning environment for the Development Coach Accreditation.
The new online and face-to-face Development Accreditation, the second of six tiers in the accreditation pathway, is targeted primarily at club, association and regional coaches and teachers who have completed the Foundation Coach Accreditation. The revised approach will see coaches complete an online component as well as the online Rules of Netball Theory Exam, before enrolling in a 4.5 face to face workshop to implement the skills learnt online.
The initial online component can be completed in a self-paced environment at a time and place that suits the learner. The quality of the online content, developed by Canopi Learning Solutions, is world-class and includes videos of players and expert coaches demonstrating Development level skills, skill progressions, court strategies and how to teach them. Netball Australia have also embedded the Netball Australia KNEE Program in the new course and introduced ‘Game Day Coaching’, which ultimately develops a more holistic coach.
The course is available to all coaches who have already completed the Foundation Coaching Course and can be organised through your state member organisation.
How much will the course cost?
The online Development Coach Accreditation course will cost participants $50.00 (inclusive of GST) to enrol through MyNetball.
The online Rules of Netball exam is free of charge.
The face-to-face Development Coach Accreditation workshop fee and financial membership is determined and managed by each State Member Organisation. All payments will be managed online through a secure gateway.
Netball WA fee for the 4.5 hour Face to Face component of the course is $77.00. Enrolments for the face to face course cannot be made until successful completion of pre-requisites (Foundation Coaching course, Online component of development course, Rules of Netball exam).
