Level 1 Community Athletics Coaching Course
St Patrick's College Queensland

Course Overview:

The Level 1 Community Athletics Coach is the entry point for the Accredited Athletics Coach (AAC) within the National Coach Accreditation Scheme (NCAS) and the Athletics Coach Accreditation Framework and its Accreditation Courses.

The Level 1 Community Athletics Coach Course is an introductory course for coaches.  It is aimed at people who would like to get into coaching, but have either no coaching experience or very limited coaching experience.  Therefore the emphasis in this course is the “coaching process” (i.e. the ‘how to coach’ rather than the ‘what to coach’).  The elements of running, jumping and throwing will be used to illustrate the key points of coaching practice. Games-based activities will be emphasised.

The target Group for the Level 1 Community Athletics Coach course are those who want to progress their involvement in the sport and be recognized and assessed as competent as an Accredited Athletics Coach (AAC).  This course is specific for beginning coaches coaching beginning participants with potential participants being athletes, teachers, coaches from other sports and parents.

NOTE: If you are a practising teacher who is looking to update your Professional Development in order to satisfy the CARAs requirements, this course is NOT the course you need to complete.  Please contact Queensland Athletics for further information.
