Coaching Accreditation Scheme
The Polocrosse Association of Australia has developed in conjunction with the Australian Sports Commission a National Coaching Accreditation Scheme designed to encourage and guide coaching activity in Polocrosse.
The scheme is designed to assist the Australian and State Associations in the proper organisation and presentation of accredited courses for coaches.
The National Coaching Scheme provides three level of coaching accreditation as follows:
Level 1 – This is an introduction to the principles of coaching and provides basic training in the skills required for coaches of beginner or novice participants and for the conduct of training programs for Club Polocrosse players.
Level 2 – This is the next level where coaches have moved from the beginner level and wish to improve their skills and knowledge to improve player performance.
Level 3 – This is the highest level of coaching that Polocrosse delivers. The course involves the advanced theory, advanced instructional management and practice of coaching Polocrosse.
The Level 2 Sport Specific Coaching course was held at the Australian Institute of Sport from 10th to 13th November 2012 with 5 Level 1 participants and 5 Level 2 and 3 coaches undertaking the course as a refresher.
