Coach Education

The following are the remaining dates for our coach education and Child Welfare & Protection courses for spring 2013. Coaches should try to attend at the courses allocated to their club but may attend at any of the other venues if their allocated date is not suitable. All coaches are asked to please register for the courses on the google doc sent to your club secretary.

Please note that participants on all courses must complete all sessions to achieve qualification. If a coach has to miss all or part of a session they will be required to attend that section at one of the other courses.
