Coach Development & Education

In alignment with our Coach Development Plan 2020-2028, Athletics NZ aims “to grow the Person, the Passion and the Profession” of coaching. We achieve this through delivering a mix of formal and information education and development opportunities.

Our informal education and development opportunities range from beginning courses like “Speed 101”, through to opportunities for performance coaches to learn from the best in the world.

Please check back in soon for more information about upcoming Coach Development Opportunities. Be sure to sign up as a Community Coach or Accredited Coach to ensure you don’t miss out on future opportunities.
