Coaching

The Athletics Australia Coach Accreditation Framework is the endorsed coach education program for athletics coaches in Australia. Coach education programs deliver knowledge, skills and experience to equip coaches with the understanding of what to coach and how to coach. Those who complete an accredited coaching program will become an Accredited Athletics Coach (AAC) at that level of accreditation and can register with Athletics Australia as a coach and therefore be insured for their coaching practice.

In addition to the Track & Field Athletic Coach Accreditation framework Athletics Australia has designed coaching courses for people training runners for fun runs, half marathons, marathons and ultra marathons. This course is particularly useful for personal trainers who are looking to move into the endurance and long run training space.
