IAAF Kids Athletics (Sporting Schools) Accreditation



Event date: 15/10/2017 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM Export event

In 2015, Sporting Schools became Australia's largest school based participation program for children and it will provide a supportive environment to foster a lifelong connection with sport. Sporting Schools, formerly the Active After-School Communities, aims to encourage more children to participate in sport across a greater number of schools.

The Kids' Athletics Upskilling Courses will train coaches in how to run a Kids' Athletics program in the Sporting Schools model including how to plan, progress the activities and run the final week Kids' Athletics Team event.

Sporting Schools offers Accredited Athletics Coaches who are up-skilled as Kids’ Athletics coaches an excellent paid employment opportunity, as well as the chance to deliver quality sporting programs at schools - before, during, or after school. This is also a perfect area for school teachers to get involved and run this program during or after school times.
