Information for Coaches

Minimum standards for active coaches

It is essential that all coaches meet the Minimum Standards for Active Coaches before they are able to coach. Minimum standards for Active coaches have been recommended for use by organisations engaged in the employment, deployment and development of coaches. The standards ensure qualified coaches deliver positive coaching experiences to participants. We aim to be the advocates for Minimum Standards for Active Coaches Across the County.
