Updating Accreditation (Coaching)
Updating involves coaches completing various tasks in the four year period following their successful competition of an accredited course (Foundation, Netball, Intermediate, Advanced, or High Performance). It is a requirement that all coaches who become accredited must continue to update their knowledge to maintain their accreditation.
Updating provides an opportunity for coaches to:
Keep up with the latest information on developments within netball.
Receive the latest general and specific safety information for netball.
Have the most up to date techniques and coaching methods in Australia.
How to Update?
When a coach receives an accreditation card after completing an accredited netball course the "update clock" starts. Coaches have four years in which to complete their updating requirements.
By attending updating activities, a coach is able to earn points towards completing the updating requirements associated with her/his current level of accreditation.
