IAAF Kids Athletics Upskilling Course

The Australian Sports Commission’s ‘Sporting Schools’ programme, offers students in primary schools access to sport based activities before, during or after school.  As of Term 3 2015, Sporting Schools will be available to every primary school in Australia. 

Athletics Australia delivers IAAF Nestlé Healthy Active Kids’ Athletics through the Sporting Schools programme which allows children to explore and develop the fundamental skills of running, jumping and throwing.

Athletics Australia is currently seeking coaches to become accredited to assist in delivering the programme around the country.

Sporting Schools will be delivered in schools before, during and after school hours and all coaches will be paid for their involvement.  

Coaches will teach children the core fundamentals of athletics - running, jumping and throwing - using modified equipment with a focus on fun and following the IAAF’s successful global framework.

To be accredited to coach as part of the Sporting Schools athletics programme, you need to be:

  • An athletics coach with a current accreditation from Athletics Australia*, OR;
  • An AASC CTP accredited coach**, OR;
  • A registered teacher**.

With Sporting Schools to be available soon in hundreds of primary school around the country, it’s expected that there will be a wide variety of opportunities for coaches around Australia to enjoy teaching kids the basics of athletics and be paid for it; so get yourself accredited now!
