The TBA Coach accreditation process and requirements have been reviewed and updated for 2021.

Changes have been made to both Bronze and Silver Level requirements to reflect more on lane experience and quality assurance across our coaching ranks.

Some changes include:

  • The new TBA Volunteer Support Program has been released. Coaches and managers are rewarded for being active at two levels: with free sports membership and registration.
  • COVID: Our coach accreditation process has adopted recommended COVID SAFE requirements and has adapted to the changing environment.
  • Coach Education: Both Face to Face and online (remote) options for Bronze and Silver Courses across Australia.
  • Silver Course: there is now an opportunity for participants to complete the Intermediate Coaching General Principles Course (requirement) online through TBA (for a fee).
  • Coaching Experience: For Bronze and Silver Courses, there is now a requirement for all participants to complete and submit a minimum number of coaching hours (on lane experience) both prior to and after completing the theory course. This is before they become accredited.
  • Quality Assurance: Participants must attend on lane sessions with approved Silver Level Coaches (Development Days or alternatives) to demonstrate skills, be assessed on their knowledge and prove that they are competent deliverers (as a Bronze or Silver Coach) before receiving their accreditation.

More information can be found on each specific coaching page.

There are three levels of coaching accreditation,
Level 1, Bronze and Silver.

Each level provides information to equip coaches with the resources necessary to coach athletes who are new to the game right through to the elite.
