COMPETITION COACH COURSE

The Shooting Australia/TRA Competition Coach Course

it’s a packed two day course that takes the Club Coach further down the path to becoming a better coach, with skills such as mental training, coach planning, skills correction and more.  The coach must demonstrate active, practical work as a coach prior to accreditation

There is an online component which considers a number of the modules which may be completed in the participant's own time prior to the week-end workshop.

This course is not teaching “how to shoot” but how to coach at a higher level, and a process of pre-screening must be applied to applicants.

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

ADVANCED COACH COURSE

  • The fourth level of accreditation
  • The Shooting Australia Advanced Coach level
  • This takes Coach Education to a higher level, and involves applicants being able to demonstrate further study at a tertiary, or external level ie the ISSF Coach course.
  • The course is more research based, over conventional classroom systems
  • This syllabus has yet to be published – hopefully later in 2020.
  • The Advanced Coach level will be accredited by SA

There are currently resources yet published for this level of coach education.

If you are interested in participating in any of these courses, please contact your State Coach, or contact Tricia Van Nus on [email protected] for further details.
