The new coaching courses have opened for enrolment!
Marking a new chapter for coach development and education in the sport, the brand new Swimming Australia Advanced and Performance Coaching Courses began accepting enrolments today.
Swimming Australia and the Australian Swimming Coaches and Teachers Association (ASCTA) jointly unveiled Australian swimming’s new coach education courses and accreditation levels last month.
This initiative has been designed to strengthen coach development for our sport, optimise performance and aid the retention of exceptional coaches across the country.
Run in partnership with Victoria University, based on the previous Silver and Gold Courses, the new training programs have been designed to align with modern best practice across the sport, training and education sectors.
With an eye on the future, Swimming Australia is excited to be able to provide coaches with an easily accessible education platform, allowing for the transition between accreditation levels with demonstrated differences between them.
Focusing on providing continual educational opportunities for the coaching community the new programs instill a structured and modular way of learning, encouraging personal development at all stages of a coaching career.
