TRA COACH EDUCATION

As you may be aware, there are four levels of Coach Education available to members within TRA. They are listed below, along with required competencies, workbooks, and support material for each level. Note SA refers to Shooting Australia.

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

CLUB INSTRUCTOR

In an ideal world, half of the members in all the clubs of Australia would be trained Club Instructors - this is a simple, one day workshop to provide the basics of assisting a visitor or new member to the club, with the catchphrase "get them safe, get them shooting!"

Resources to the Presenters for this workshop include:
Syllabus document                               Participant Resource Manual
Presenter Notes                                    Technical Quiz
Participant Workbook

CLUB COACH COURSE

The course is comprised of two parts: Online modules and Workshop.
The online component considers a number of the modules which must be completed in the participant's own time prior to the week-end workshop.

The two day practical workshop conducted after the completion of the online modules work, takes the experienced shooter on the path to becoming a coach, with skills such as communication, coach planning, best practice in technical skills and more.  The coach must demonstrate active, practical work as a coach prior to accreditation.

The Club Coach Course is accredited by SA after confirmation by TRA
