Updating involves coaches completing various tasks in the four year period following their successful competition of an accredited course (Foundation, Development, Intermediate, Advanced, Elite or High Performance). It is a requirement that all coaches who become accredited must continue to update their knowledge to maintain their accreditation.
Updating provides an opportunity for coaches to:
Keep up with the latest information on developments within netball.
Receive the latest general and specific safety information for netball.
Have the most up to date techniques and coaching methods in Australia.
How to Update?
When a coach receives an accreditation after completing an accredited netball course the “update clock” starts. Coaches have four years in which to complete their updating requirements.
By attending updating activities, a coach is able to earn points towards completing the updating requirements associated with her/his current level of accreditation.
If you have lost your Update Log Book you can download one from the Netball Australia website. Information regarding prospective updating activities and points can also be found in this document.
It is important that details of all practical involvement and attendance at approved courses and seminars (that will contribute to your re-accreditation) are accurately recorded in an up-to-date Log Book. You should take your Log Book to all possible updating activities.
How many Points do I need to Update my Accreditation?
