Little Athletics WA (LAWA) recognises that quality coaching is essential to the growth and success of our sport, LAWA is pleased to provide support for existing and new coaches to achieve an Athletics Australia Coaching accreditation. For a new coach to become a Level 1 Community Athletics Coach or a developing coach to upskill and become a Level 2 Intermediate Club or Advanced Coach.
The Introduction to Coaching course is a non accredited practical coaching course designed for Little Athletics. The aim of the ITC course is to provide parents, teachers and interested sports people who have little or no experience of the sport of track and field coaching information and activities. Introduction to Coaching courses are designed for beginner coaches to give a sound basic knowledge and are particularly appropriate for people coaching young athletes at the grass roots level.
The majority of the course is practical, with some theory involved. The atmosphere of the course is fun, making it a day where people can feel relaxed and motivated by what you learn.
Athletics WA conducts accredited coach education courses on behalf of Athletics Australia. These are run separately of Little Athletics, but also provide high quality development opportunities. Click here for more information.
