The Coaching Blueprint aims to unite the national coaching community from grassroots to high performance by providing a world leading development system to support netball participation at all levels, and ensure that the coaching community is empowered and well supported.

Netball Australia is responsible for developing policy, accreditation, development programs and resources to support the many thousands of coaches across the country.

The new Coaching Blueprint includes a Coach Approach document which outlines the sport’s philosophical approach to coaching – one that promotes player learning and ownership of that learning, through creating player awareness, responsibility and self- belief.

The Coaching Our Way – Player Centred eLearning platform is an interactive coach learning tool, designed to give coaches education on the player centred coaching philosophy and how they can implement it with their playing group.

The resource, available below, has been developed to provide support to the Coaching Blueprint and Coach Approach strategy which aims to support netball participation, and ensure that the coaching community is empowered and well supported.

The free resource includes four modules of interactive learning designed to get coaches thinking about how to apply the principles of player centred coaching with their unique playing group and hear from Australian Diamonds coach Lisa Alexander and players about the benefits. A coach journal tool allows coaches to make notes of their learning and strategies for implementation, along with downloadable PDF’s and surveys. A certificate of recognition will be issued upon completion of all four modules.
