The Shooting Australia (SA) Competition Coach course, as delivered by TRA endorsed Presenters, is the third level of endorsed and accredited coach education.

1st level – TRA Club Instructor
2nd level – SA/TRA Club Coach
3rd level – SA/TRA Competition Coach
4th level – SA/TRA Advanced Coach

As an accredited Club Coach, we invite you to extend your knowledge to the Competition Coach area.

The move to an online learning component is a totally new approach, and one that we hope will prove popular.

Duration of this training program

The duration of the SA Competition Coach training program is approximately 10 hours, ie a fairly full weekend workshop, plus this online component, and practical coach assessment/s usually completed post course.

Course Target Group

Coaches who have completed the Club Coach course, and wish to progress along the Coaching Pathway are eligible to apply to complete this course.

Online modules
