Coach Accreditation Framework
The Coaching Framework within Australia is divided into 3 sections. The Track and Field Framework, the Recreational Running Framework and the Performance Framework. The Track and Field Framework focuses on the events within the traditional track and field setting. The Recreational Running Framework is focused on the road running and the recreational running community. The Performance Framework is for coaches who aspire to work with high-performance athletes.
To become an accredited athletics coach within Australia coaches must complete and pass one or more of the courses available within the current coaching framework. Athletics Australia is the accrediting body for coaching courses within Australia. These courses are approved by the Australian Sports Commission’s National Coaching Accreditation Scheme.
Without the support of officials who volunteer their time and expertise we would be unable to run competitions and our sport would not run effectively. We would encourage anyone thinking about getting involved in officiating to do a course.
It is now time to register as a member of the official’s and volunteer’s family. Being a member of Athletics North Queensland Officials Club opens you up to the Athletics community and gives you the opportunity to volunteer and/or officiate regardless of your ability or competition level. Athletics is a great way to meet new people, get fit and opportunities to represent your state and country.
