Club Coach Course – Delivered Online

Register your interest here.

The ALA, in conjunction with our Member Associations, are pleased to announce that we will be running a Club Coach Course online so you can update your coaching skills and knowledge from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the country.

The course will be delivered across 3 separate nights over 3 weeks. Coaches will need to attend all 3 sessions (which will go for approx. 1.5 hours each) and complete tasks before and after each session to be able to complete their accreditation.  The dates set aside for the webinars are 6th, 13th and 20th of May 2020.

As the course content will be delivered via webinars and other web base platforms, to make the course more interactive, participants will be required to use either multiple devices or be able to flick between multiple browsers to fully participate in the course.

At this point in time we are asking for expression of interest from coaches who would like to take part in this course which will assistance with our planning.

Once we have an understanding of numbers the ALA will then be in contact with coaches to finalise registration to the course (there will be a $55 payment) and to provide more details surrounding the course content and assessment tasks.

This is a great opportunity for beginner coaches or coaches who currently do not hold an accreditation to get some training and development while the lacrosse action is on hold for a while.
