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
Elite Accreditation Attain High Performance OR Complete 100 points in 4 years
High Performance Accreditation Complete 120 points in 4 years

I’ve got a question!

We thought you might! Here’s a couple of things you’ll need to know. You can also find the answers to more frequently asked questions here.

How does it work?

Our accreditation updates work on a points system. So, when you’re updating your accreditation you need to make sure you’ve reached the relevant number of points within four years of gaining your current accreditation.

When is the best time to apply for an accreditation update?

You can only apply for an update within six months of your current accreditation expiry date. MyNetball will prompt you.

Do I need to have anything on hand?

When you’re updating your accreditation, it’s a good idea to have a list of any practical coaching, umpiring or bench officiating activities on hand. You can add this information by completing the relevant fields in step six.

I’m not sure how to update my accreditation.
