Compulsory Elite Coaching Accreditation for Premier League and Open A

Coaches are now running out of time to register for the  Bridging and Elite Coaching Course set for Sydney with accreditation compulsory for the 2017 Vawdon Cup.

As the subject line suggests NSW Touch Football have adjusted the accreditation requirements for Coaches for the upcoming 2017 Vawdon Cup, particularly Coaches involved in the Men’s &  Women’s Premier League. The same rules are also being implemented for the 2017 State Cup in the Open A Divisions of Men’s, Women’s & Mixed.

This accreditation will be compulsory for the 2017 Vawdon Cup (Premier Leagues) and State Cup (Open A-Men’s, Open A-Women’s & Open A-Mixed) and this has also been advertised in the NSWTA General Conditions of Entry.

The rationale in this decision to increase the accreditation requirement for NSWTA events is that we see the ongoing education of our high end coaches as essential for the betterment of the sport in our state. This obviously has great benefit at not only the Affiliate level but also the Regional and State too. We believe this update in accreditation will arm you with the best tools to take your coaching to the next level as well improve your knowledge on current trends.

With changes that have occurred within the coach education framework in recent years there are two definitive types of accreditation that require updating to Coach in the above categories.  As such all existing Level 2 accredited Coaches (accredited prior to 2014) will need to only complete an Elite Bridging Course whilst all Talent accredited Coaches (2014 to now) will need to complete the Elite Full Course.

Details of each courses can be seen below;
