Becoming a Coach
The Triathlon Development Coach Training Program has been developed by Triathlon Australia in line with the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) National Coach Accreditation Scheme Guidelines and is directly linked to the ASC Coaching and Officiating Unit standards for coaching, as a result, it is a nationally recognised coaching accreditation.
The Triathlon Development Coach Training Program is designed for, and targeted at beginner coaches who assist beginner and intermediate triathletes to develop and advance their triathlon technical skills, fitness and competition skills. The training program addresses generic coaching and its application to triathlon coaching, and teaches coaches how to nurture and develop beginner and intermediate triathletes. The accreditation allows coaches to independently plan, prescribe and evaluate triathlon training for beginner and intermediate triathletes. The work of coaches at this level will be vital in supporting new, developing triathletes and enhancing the development of existing triathletes.
The Triathlon Development Coach Training Program consists of three components; a pre-course online learning component, a two day practical (face to face) coaching course and the post course assessment tasks. The post course assessment tasks must be completed within specific time frames following attendance at the practical coaching course.
