2018-19 Coach Accreditation
It’s not too late to become an Accredited Coach for 2018-19. To continue to meet the needs of participants within our sport, Athletics New Zealand has introduced a new coaching framework, and established the “Athletics NZ Accredited Coach”.
This replaces our former Coach Membership and introducing this is another step towards realising our ambition to professionalise coaching.
It is our long term vision that ALL coaches who coach in our sport be accredited coaches with Athletics NZ.
