Whether you are coaching at entry level by coaching your child's team, or you are a more experienced coach guiding our Representative players, all coaches play a crucial role in ensuring netball is a positive and enjoyable experience for all participants.  

We encourage everyone with an interest in coaching to volunteer and help out your club/entity team.  Netball Australia offer some excellent coaching courses to give you some of the basics of coaching, starting with their 'Community Coaching  Essential Skills' Course.  This course is designed to assist new, returning or current coaches to create positive, safe and inclusive learning environments for participants to learn, enjoy and thrive through sport.  After completing this course, you are well equipped to volunteer as as Assistant Coach whilst you gain some confidence and learn from more experienced coaches.

Most club/entity team coaches will be expected to hold a current 'Foundation Coach Accreditation' from 2024.  This accreditation is completed online only.  It is designed for beginner coaches, teachers, parents and NetSetGo coaches and offers introductory coaching information and teaches basic netball techniques.  Once you have completed this course, you will have a well rounded understanding of netball coaching.  

LNA will reimburse all coaches (who are coaching teams in the LNA Competition) the cost of their Foundation Coaching Accreditation upon receipt of their payment confirmation and completion certificate.  

We know that when you first start coaching, it can be a little overwhelming, and that's why we are here to help!  LNA can help coaches with coaching manuals, resources and assistance from experienced coaches who are willing to assist you in your coaching pathway.  Coaches must be 16 years of age or older.  Coaches under 18 yo must have an unrelated team manager over 18yo to support them.  Please contact us for more information.

Coaches who wish to pursue high level coaching can undertake their 'Development Coach Accreditation'.  This accreditation is a blended  learning program (online and face-to-face components).  This course is targeted at Club, Association and Regional coaches and teachers aiming to further their netball knowledge.  It provides a good introduction to skill progression and fault detection and correction.  Accredited Development Coaches are eligible to coach* Representative teams at Association Championships & Regional Championships. 

*Note - LNA recommends that coaches assist an experienced Development Coach for one season prior to taking on a head coach role at this level.

LNA will reimburse all coaches (who are coaching LNA Rep teams) the cost of their Development Coaching Accreditation upon receipt of their payment confirmation and completion certificate.  

Regardless of where you may be at on your coaching pathway, we are here to help.  Please contact us via email, or the use the links provided in this page for more information.
