Upcoming C and B Diploma Courses


Registrations are still open for three C Diploma courses and one B Diploma course to commence in March.

The main focus of the required coaching competency on the ‘C’ Diploma is on the technical aspects of the game, which includes teaching the techniques of passing, receiving, striking the ball and running with the ball, along with defending techniques to regain possession.

The required technical knowledge will be supported with an understanding of The Principles of Play and the fundamentals of coaching. Participants will be introduced to the concept of teaching behaviour in different types of practice methods as part of the education program, but also to provide insight into the ‘B’ Diploma.

The ‘C’ Diploma is a minimum of 60 hours in duration and will be delivered with face to face learning with supplementary online learning.
