Coaches in the Field

Netball Victoria will continue to offer opportunities for coaches to progress through Netball Australia’s Coach Accreditation Pathway by conducting courses & workshops.

The purpose of Netball Victoria’s Coaches in the Field program is to support the existing National Coach Accreditation Framework by delivering three hour educational workshops designed for coaches at the grassroots level coaches through to Intermediate accredited coaches. Workshops are delivered by Netball Victoria’s most experienced Coach Developers.
