every good athlete, there's bound to be a good coach. Coaches play a
vital role in the physical and emotional wellbeing of athletes.
Coaches draw on years of experience as an athlete, as a mentor or just simply as a local community member to lend a helping
hand in the sport and recreation community.
Coaches have to be aware of the latest trends in diet, training methods and motivation techniques.
The department provides coaches with a wide range of resources,
including training clinics and access to the latest research, to ensure
they can keep WA athletes ahead of the pack.
Many of the training clinics also target local community
coaches who require basic skills to create a fun and safe environment
for children to be active.
If you would like more information about becoming a coach in your sport contact your State Sporting Association.
We support the active involvement of well-trained, skilled and informed people delivering coaching services at community level through to supporting elite athletes.
The department offers training and programs to assist the development of
coaches and supports State Sporting Associations by providing the
resources and investments. For more information on funding, scholarship
and programs specific to your sport contact your State Sporting Association
The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) offers a wide variety of training programs and resources to assist coaches to develop in their role. Many of these are facilitated by the department.
