Netball Australia has launched an innovative approach to its national Coach Accreditation Framework, with the introduction of a blended learning environment for the Development Coach Accreditation.

The new online and face-to-face Development Accreditation, the second of six tiers in the accreditation pathway, is targeted primarily at club, association and regional coaches and teachers who have completed the Foundation Coach Accreditation.  The revised approach will see coaches complete an online component as well as the online Rules of Netball Theory Exam, before enroling in a four-hour face to face workshop to implement the skills learnt online.


The initial online component can be completed in a self-paced environment at a time and place that suits the learner.  The quality of the online content, developed by Canopi Learning Solutions, is world-class and includes videos of players and expert coaches demonstrating Development level skills, skill progressions, court strategies and how to teach them. Netball Australia have also embedded the Netball Australia KNEE Program in the new course and introduced ‘Game Day Coaching’, which ultimately develops a more holistic coach.

Debra Armstrong, High-Performance Coach and Technical Adviser, assisted Netball Australia in reviewing the online content and developing the new 4-hour face to face workshop.

How much will the course cost?

The online Development Coach Accreditation course will cost participants $50.00 (inclusive of GST) to enroll in through MyNetball. TCNAI will reimburse participants half of this amount, on successful completion of the course.
