Training and events for coaches
Coaches draw on years’ of experience as an
athlete, in a mentoring role, or just simply as a local community member
keen to lend a helping hand.
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 are also targeted at local community
coaches who require basic skills to create a fun and safe environment
for children to be active.
The department is committed to raising the profile, expertise and
experience of coaches in Western Australia. Professional development
opportunities for coaches are the cornerstone of this process.
We have a comprehensive program to provide accredited training and
professional development opportunities for coaches at the community
level through to the elite.
