Activities for coach re-accreditation

** CONSTRUCTION NOTE**

There are discrepancies between the information appearing in tables (listed on this page in accordion below) and the pdf document sourced from Paul Crook documents in early in 2018. Which information is current?

> see pdf here

Continuous professional development is necessary to ensure coaches maintain a contemporary understanding of the sport and can deliver the best possible training to athletes.

The tables below show the various activities which can be undertaken by coaches to satisfy AFF re-accreditation requirements. Each activity requires supporting evidence and verification to qualify for the allocated points.

The activities may be taken from any of the categories in any combination (with the exception that only two thirds of points may come from HPP table activities). In addition to the activities listed here, coaches may apply to the National Coaching Director to have a course, seminar, work shop or other suitable activity recognised for accreditation points.

The Community Coaching General Principles course is mandatory and must be completed every four years to maintain a contemporary understanding of the interpersonal management requirements that this course targets. No points are awarded for this course. Other AIS online courses can be resubmitted as a coach updating activity every two years.
