Becoming a Coach

From time to time the Sydney Pacific Athletic Club seeks new Coaches for different events and disciplines.

Athletics Australia (AA) conducts Accredited Coaching Courses throughout the year for new, developing and experienced coaches. The Australian Track & Field Coaches Association (ATFCA) conducts workshops and  National Conferences.

Completing a Coaching Course gains Coaching Accreditation with Athletics Australia. The majority of Sydney Pacific Athletic Club Coaches are members of both AA and the ATFCA.

The Sydney Pacific Athletic Club pays the annual fees of its Coaches that are ATFCA members when funds are available.

Athletics Australia requires Accredited Coaches to have a Working With Children Number (WWCN) in their home State or Territory. Sydney Pacific Athletic Club Coaches are required to provide their NSW WWCN to the Club Registrar as articulated in the Sydney Pacific Athletic Club's 'Member Protection Policy'.
