Coaches complete a series of tasks over a four-year period following their successful completion of a Netball Australia Coach Accreditation course. Netball Australia recommends that all coaches who become accredited continue to upgrade their knowledge.

The updating program aims to raise the overall quality of coaches within netball by ensuring they are provided with ongoing education and development opportunities covering areas such as:

  • Keeping abreast of the latest information on developments within netball
  • Having access to the most up-to-date techniques and coaching methods for netball

Netball Australia requires a coach to reach the specified number of points of updating activity for each accreditation level.

Foundation Accreditation Attain Development OR Complete 20 points in 4 years
Development Accreditation Attain Intermediate OR Complete 40 points in 4 years
Intermediate Accreditation Attain Advanced OR Complete 60 points in 4 years
Advanced Accreditation Attain Elite OR Complete 80 points in 4 years

How to update

Coaches have four years in which to complete their updating requirements. By attending any updating activity, a coach is able to earn points towards completing the updating requirements associated with their current level of accreditation.

Coaches are required to keep a log book of their practical coaching hours and educational activities. Each level of accreditation requires a different number of points to be obtained within the four year period to meet the updating requirements.

For all updating information and requirements please refer to the Coaching Update Log Book
