Overview

 

Volleyball Australia operates a coach education & development program so individuals can enter the pathway as a coach, with little or no knowledge of the sport. Progress along this pathway is designed to allow a coach to develop their skills and coaching competencies within their own environment or while progressing along the coaching pathway. Many Australian coaches have been able to obtain professional contracts coaching overseas clubs or athletes in either Volleyball or Beach Volleyball.


 

ALL AUSTRALIAN VOLLEYBALL SCHOOLS CUP (AVSC) COACHES

Please note from 2018 the regulations have changed to ensure all AVSC coaches have a Volleyball Australia Coaching Accreditation, a Working with Children’s Check (or equivalent), and the Play by the Rules modules Child Protection and Harassment and Discrimination.

Below you will find information on how to obtain and submit your required paperwork.

 

 


ATTENTION ALL COACHES

As of September 2017 Volleyball Australia implemented new requirements for all coaches.

All coaches will need to complete the Play by the Rules modules:

  • Child Protection
  • Harassment and Discrimination

These will need to be completed if the individual is looking to gain, renew or upgrade their accreditation or coaches who are looking to participate in any Volleyball Australia and most state events.

Currently we do not offer exemptions from this requirement. Teachers and those who are not coaching juniors are still expected to complete these modules.

To access the free online modules please go here

To upload your modules for an upcoming Volleyball Australia event please go here

All coaches level 2 and above are also required to have completed the ASC Community Coaching General Principles. This course can be accessed through the following link and is also a free online resource: https://www.ausport.gov.au/participating/coaches/onlinecoach
