There has been some significant changes to the 2021 Coach Education Course delivery across the Canberra Region.
It is important that all new coaches in 2021 understand the processes involved in gaining accreditation.
The courses are born out of the latest knowledge, evidence and best practice when it comes to coaching players – courses are more age specific and focus on creating the right environment.
The process is as follows:
Coaches start by registering with their club via www.playrugbyleague.com/register
Coaches then complete an age-specific Community Coach eLearning course that provides them with a temporary accreditation, allowing them to start working with their team. This eLearning is free of charge and is designed to allow coaches to start their accreditation in an accessible and affordable way. The eLearning can be accessed by clicking here
To complete the accreditation, coaches will register and attend a Face to Face Workshop that corresponds to the age-specific eLearning, for a small fee of $20. These separate workshops are delivered to Coaches of 6-12 year olds and also coaches of 13-18 year olds. Coaches will only need to attend the relevant workshop/s specific to the age category they are coaching in once. (Note: Coaches coaching in the 19+ age groups will only be required to complete the eLearning, attendance at a workshop is optional).
Once both components have been completed no later than the 30th of June 2021, coaches will be provided with a four-year accreditation.
Please note: Online course completion will grant you a coaching accreditation until 30th of June 2021. Coaches will be required to attend a face to face workshop before that date to gain the full four years accreditation.
