Becoming an Accredited Athletics Coach is your first step to developing the skills and confidence required to assist your athletes to be their best.  All of our courses are engaging, educationals, entertaining and are designed to give you a practical understanding of coaching Athletics at all levels of the sport.

Overview of the Athletics Australia Coaching Framework

The coaching framework is designed to progressively introduce the coaching skills required to deveop athletes from beginner to high performance.  The skills delivered at each level are significant to that level of athlete.  Those coaching beginner athletes are taught how to coach the fundamental movement skills of track and field, laying the foundation for further development of technical skills as the athlete and coach progress.
