Overview of the Athletics Coach Accreditation Framework
Athletics Australia are the accrediting body for all athletics coaches in Australia and are the only athletics body with courses approved by the Australian Sports Commission National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS). This accreditation brings with it accountability to be up to date with current best practice as well as ensuring our courses are engaging and in line with the best adult education principles.
The Athletics Coach Accreditation Framework is designed to progressively introduce the coaching skills required to develop athletes from beginner to elite. In this way the coaching pathway mimics the athlete’s pathway. The framework is designed to allow coaches of all levels to master their coaching, be it at the beginner level or the advanced level.
