Coaching Unlimited – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Netball Coaching Course

Applications are now open for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander netball coaches to attend a free face-to-face foundation coaching workshop facilitated by Dr Andrew Bennie from Western Sydney University. The course will develop not just your on-court coaching but also game sense, mental health, nutritional and wellbeing advice, and other topics. The workshop is located at Campbelltown District Netball Association on Sunday the 17th of February. You can apply here and then email the completed form to NNSW Participation Coordinator – Community Engagement, Sam White, swhite@netballnsw.com.

This free program was created in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and national sports organisations to deliver formal coach accreditation training in a variety of sports. In addition, Coaching Unlimited goes beyond initial coach accreditation by providing research-led educational programs that develop coaching knowledge and skills in meaningful areas such as nutrition, leadership, mentoring, health promotion and cultural connectedness.

The coaches who attend these workshops can then share their knowledge with their athletes, coaching networks, and local communities in which they live and work. To ensure the success of Coaching Unlimited, researchers measure the impact of the workshop on the coaches and their communities over time. 

Coaching Unlimited, in partnership with Netball New South Wales and Netball Australia, has so far held two successful coach education and health promotion workshops in New South Wales. The workshop is located at Campbelltown District Netball Association on Sunday the 17th of February.
